Speak for yourself. Speak for the FSF too, perhaps. But not for me.

The Bugtraq vs CERT debate (should security problems be discussed in
private so they can't be subverted, or in public so that people understand
the risks and can avoid them in other ways) has been done before.

BTW, just killfile Galt, you don't miss anything worthwhile and you do
miss a whole bunch of mindless nonsense. Even better, if he ever gets
the sense to start using a real name, he won't stay killfiled. It's win,
win, win, I say.
