    Well, better late than never ;)

    In the beginning, the Internet was a trusted place for sweet geeks. But that was ages ago :(

    Well, like they said, there's no way to fool-proof it. But what's more likely is that governments will throw their weight around and water it all down if not make it nearly pointless. Funny how few attacks and crimes are being prevented with all that eavesdropping, huh? Gosh, it's almost like mass surveillance doesn't work and has opposite its intended effect. Whodathunkit?

    I googled IETF and found out what those initials stood for. But what is RFC and PM? It would be nice if they spelled that out the first time so people would know what they're referring to. I am quite certain that I am not the only person who is not familiar with those abbreviations.
