An often overlooked issue is that the right choice for a clued and technically
competent site is quite often a poor choice for a site that's not able to
get its clue together. And there's a lot more of the latter than the former.
Which is also a reason some opt for another alternative and outsource
their security needs. There are some bad as well as some darned good
companies that do security monitor/warning for those orgs that find this
their best/better alternative.

eliminates dreams, goals, and ideals and lets us get straight to the
business of hate, debauchery, and self-annihilation." -- Johnny Hart

OK, so you're a Ph.D. Just don't touch anything.
