Matt Moen (no relation, but a friend) has done ground-breaking
research/comedy -- yes, it really was both at the same time -- on this
subject:  http://www.linux.com/articles/42031

Cheers,              Crypto lets someone say "Hi! I absolutely definitely have 
Rick Moen            a name somewhat like the name of a large familiar 
rick@linuxmafia.com  organization, and I'd like to steal your data!" and lots 
McQ!  (4x80)         of users will say "OK, fine, whatever."    -- John Levine
