Bad enough? I see this as a great thing. Sure it's parasitic but thats the beauty of it. All _great_ systems have parasites.

This is the foundation of evolution, evolve (harden your security) or die and leave the gene pool.

This will coerce web developers and sysadmins to implement end to end encryption as a normal implementation paradigm.

The only question i'm left with is WHY THE FUCK WERENT WE DOING THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?!

If anything we don't feed them enough, well fed parasites result in more hardened hosts.

Yeah, sorry guys, I had a dumb joke/hypothetical about using a tool like idiocy in conjuction with the twitter search api to try to map out online social connections of people around you in a cafe. Somehow I copy->pasted->submitted just that one sentence from vim. When I looked at the thread again, I was overcome with the idiocy^?^?^?^?^?^?irony and turned my computer off.
