Sorry if I criticized you undeservedly, then. That exchange of mails was
unclear at best, however. In this particular branch of this (silly)
1) Tim Bilbro blasted me for disclosing a problem and compared this to
checking at night for open store doors.
2) Bob replied and criticized Tim saying that the analogy is flawed, and
that it can be compared, at best, to informing the public about car
manufacturing faults and recalls.
3) You replied to Bob's (not Tim's!) mail and said that "it's a lousy
analogy" and mentioned "exploiting flaws to drive it off" in a way
that can be, at best, read in a couple of ways.
It was only fair to assume that you meant to blast a (generally favorable)
analogy brought up by Bob. If that wasn't your intention, OK, but it
wasn't nearly as obvious as you'd probably want it to be.
I'll assume you're as proficient in english as in morals
