Advance notice of what's landing helps an engineer know what to
focus on, and where work would be duplicated. Resources are
finite. That includes time. Not everything needs to be done in
house in order to be "serious."

I'll take it one step further.
Mr. Hutchins never responded to questions raised by Mr. Largo.
Mr. Hutchins may have multiple PhD's in "Internet Security" with decades of experience.
I am actually an "END USER". I've been told I am an "administrator" *SOLELY* because I'm the ultimate authority of the multiple systems residing on my table top .

Mr. Largo has evidently done his "homework".
He, and those like me, deserve a polite/germane/relevant response.
