No, this is not enough. Where is the fucking accountability? The person who proposed this needs to be named, and fired, and any bonuses paid for this need to be taken back.

You are only sorry you got caught with your hands in the cookie jar.

This type of shitty nonsense have been going on for years, and I'm surprised that both Microsoft *AND* Windows users just tolerate it.

Because you're a fucking idiot? Who did you think worked on WebKit? They also wrote Grand Central Dispatch and released it as open source. They bought CUPS and continued its development. They even contributed to USB3 - Apple was the largest corporate contributor to USB3 outside of Intel - this is why you have the reversible connector for USB3.1.

No we don't. We have armies of wannabes saying they are working on this. But I guarantee you most of them have no clue. I get stupid questions like "why is not having a password insecure?" to "must I patch?" to "but it's not on the internet" to all kinds of nonsense.

I guarantee you there wasn't anyone security related, whose sole function was security, working on these things, because they are unencrypted and have been for years.

Exactly! Who is the government to tell us we must have a license to drive? And so many kinds of licenses! Why can't one license allow me to drive anything?! From motorcycles to trucks to airplanes!!! What next? Will we have licenses for hunting? What if it is out of season and we're hungry? If we can't shoot it, can we go fishing? Yet another damned license?! What does it take to feed myself man!!

Why is it that all these self proclaimed "I think it's a good idea *BUT*" people always take it to the illogical conclusion?! Any laws that require mandatory vaccination, such as the one in Mississippi - they have 99+% vaccination rate!! always ties it back to the doctors, either the AMA or the American Association of Pediatrics.

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
