deep sense of hurt that a lot of what was in the media was not entirely accurate
Coming from an agency who's entire public record can be summed up by the words "not entirely accurate"
Shit, dog, I got nothin.
Positive: The device won't cut off your hands.
Negative: The device will cut off your head.
Maybe it's not so bad?
Positive: It won't cut off your head.
Negative: It will cut off your hands.
Positive: It won't cut off your head, your kids are entertained and happy because...
Negative: For about 20% of uses shocks the shit outta you.
Still not enough? Ok
Positive: This device is great, doesn't chop off your head or hands and it doesn't shock you.
Negative: After about 3 months of heavy usage a small bit of plastic will break rendering the device inoperable. However it's easy to fix and you're a do-it-yourself guy. $1 at a local hardware store and it's good as new and will last you for many years to come.
Perhaps it's best to look at all the facts rather than just the positive ones.
Why not just help the OpenSSL folks strengthen an already great product
There are a number of developers for whom we were unable to determine a corporate affiliation; those are grouped under “unknown” in the table below. With few exceptions, all of the people in this category have contributed ten or fewer changes to the kernel over the past three years, yet the large number of these developers causes their total contribution to be quite high.
The category “none,” instead, represents developers who are known to be doing this work on their own, with no financial contribution happening from any company.
"Unknown" means they don't know if the author's work is sponsored.
For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong. -- H. L. Mencken
