What name calling? There's a difference.
It's fine for a home user to implement it quickly but it's not so easy

You're assuming unrestricted outbound connections. Might even be true in
The problem is even bigger when you consider that a lot of places are

Not applicable. That requires not only a change on the part of the

that everyone should just implement everything right now--but some of us
live in the real world.
