    He needs to familiarize himself with responsible disclosure, and preferably also a razor.

    What's wrong with having a beard? Having one or lacking one doesn't say anything about one's credibility or willingness to help others. ;)

    Maybe if more were like him, things would be better? :D

    There's a difference between a beard and a jungle. :p

    I think its cool what he is doing, but he needs to take a break and go get some barbsol and some razor blades.There is a difference of a man with a beard and cave beast.

    But, you folks are giving importance to the appearance. If it was a fat lady, would you say she should do a liposuction?

    Does anyone complain about Santa distributing presents to the children? No... :D And, that's one massive jungle you got there. :argh:

    Or, Richard Stallman... I don't see anyone complaining about his beard... if he still has it. :p

    -edit-

    Would you give credibility to this person (-http://kevinsallee.deviantart.com/art/another-funny-face-139457254)? :D He may actually be a genius!!! lol

    I agree...what the man looks like has no relevance to what he is saying. How is his beard hurting anyone?

    Those of you whom talk about hirsute issues fail to see the genius of his strategic activism - we all should hope that we can achieve and/or support such activism to tweak our governments to respect and support our right to privacy and security!
