Comment And it'll be a shitshow because of course it is (Score 3, Funny) 118

Sneak preview of the API:

crypto_really_encode(plaintext, algorithm); // Simplest
crypto_really_encode(plaintext, mode, algorithm); // Next arg goes in the middle
crypto_really_encode(block_size, plaintext, algorithm, mode); // Switch it up yo lol

...where AES will somehow be a valid value for both mode and algorithm (which will silently override to "NULL" if plaintext starts with a zero or the letter "p").

Comment Do NOT delete your account! It's a security risk! (Score 4, Informative) 100

Yahoo re-issues email addresses after they've been deleted. Are you absolutely 100% certain you haven't used that account as the password reset address for anything else? If so, go ahead (so long as you don't mind someone else having your username). If there's any chance at all that your old Yahoo address's new owner could reset your Facebook password, for instance, then purge your Yahoo account instead.

Yes, everything to do with Yahoo is a travesty. Why do you ask?

Context. Everyone, left and right, are getting sick to death of PC and Trump blatantly ignored it - mocked it. Being polite and civil never works in the middle of a fight and the PC crowd had stepped from annoying to confrontational to open conflict years ago. I sincerely hope the PC culture continues to implode like a domino spiral.
