I fail to see how you two arguing about who knows more (or less) about
cryptopgraphy adds ANY value to this list. Please don't bother me
with assertions about who was privy to god's own truth in this matter.
This is an ideal candidate for a PRIVATE exchange: a pissing contest.
I'm getting pretty tired of people that need an audience to argue in
And please don't accuse me of being hypocritical.
