Funny. All I get is a blank white page. Could it be you are expecting me
to trust your site, turn off all my defenses, turn on scripting, to view
the page? You're kidding right, this is just a joke to test participants
gullibility, right?

Sarcasm noted, but that _is_ standard operating procedure for iDEFENSE.

As I have argued several times before, for example (sorry, URL will 
wrap):

January/030971.html

it seems that at iDEFENSE, having a spiffy, bells-and-whistles website 
that is over-designed by folk with no security clue whatsoever is much 
more important than being a security company.  Now, even MS (at least 
after a bit of borax was poured on it) fixed their security bulletin 
pages so script-disabled browsers could view the entire contents of the 
page, but iDEFENSE steadfastly doesn't, so I guess we can all tell what 
that means about iDEFENSE's business focus.  (Read the above-linked 
item for a more detailed explication of all this.)
