From my blog:

""[Unofficial patches are available, as is a leaked official patch]

Just wanted to point out the public admittance that Joe Average is
actually netdev.

Thought he was banned?

Its just these sort of posts that were the reason he was banned I
thought. More relevant is what Simon Richter mentioned, the fact that
if people get used to installing unofficial patches, they could be
setting up themselves to install something dodgy in the future. People
shouldn't get used to installing unofficial patches.
