If that's the case, you failed to relay this information.

You said:

Security problems are not necessarily technical.

Security, in general, is a social issue.  There are technical issues
which need to be addressed as a part of security, but security problems
can't be solved through purely technical means.

What false technical reasons?  I don't see any reject reasons I'd
classify as technical.  Either you have not told us the real problem,
or you are inaccurate in characterizing the problem (these needn't be
mutually exclusive).
