You're slighting Secunia.  At least Secunia does SOME original

Show me their original research. The list on their website is claimed

 Its a purely scene whore website, with no Secunia
original content. Maybe some folks reading the site haven't seen some
content elsewhere, but thats more because Secunia don't state the
original source, but they do state on their website at the bottom of
advisories that their content is taken from third party websites,
groups, researchers etc.

  No, it's because you're so fucking thick you didn't even look at the right
page where they'd filtered out their own, secunia-originated advisories.

 Further, the service that Secunia provides is one of centralization
and organization.  There are hundreds of points of delivery and
discussion for original research, Secunia itself being one of them.

List your claim of their original research, thanks.

  Proven in spades, moron.

Secunia do none of the above. Go research on what they actually do,
than reading their carefully crafted wording on their website(s).

  You need to do more than just read that "carefully crafted wording".  You
need to actually try and *comprehend* it, you illiterate simpleton.  Secunia
are not to blame for the fact that you can't read plain english.  It makes
it perfectly clear that their advisories come from third-party sources
unless explicitly stated otherwise.

" Please note: The information, which this Secunia Advisory is based upon,
comes from third party unless stated otherwise."

  What part of that don't you understand?  "Carefully crafted"?  That's
plain bloody english, and you are just utterly blinded by your delusional
beliefs about what they say and do.  So blinded that you weren't even able
to click on a couple of links or do a halfway less than pathetic attempt to
research the matter.

It is not free. Secunia have given FD so much money, for the hidden
agenda of the URL in the footer message. If they are hosting FD and
its secure, its very much to protect their illegal spamming of
thousands of mail boxes.

  You're a paranoid kook.  There is no such organisation as FD.  It's a
mailing list.  How the hell can anyone give money to a mailing list?  And
how could anything be illegal spamming when you deliberately went and signed
up for it?  FD uses double-opt-in, it's an exemplar of good practice in
mailing-list management.

You're the only one who doesn't seem to understand my stance and why
it makes sense. Trust me, i'm not alone on this one. Folks I speak to

  The voices in your head don't count.

  Now why don't you keep your word for the first time in your life and fuck
off like you said you would?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
