 I almost missed this little jewel, having the inestimable Mr. "n3td3v"
 in my junk list (anyone else think it odd he always refers to himself in
 the third party?)

 I want to see if I can follow the logic here. May 1st is a common day
 for ANTI-capitalism protests. Web applications are tied to e-commerce.
 Therefore, the day you *protest* commerce is the perfect day to hold a
 contest that conceivably you wish to help make commerce more *secure*?
 These threads never  fail to provide some comic relief just when I need it.

i was just trying to bring awareness to web application security, not
have a protest against capitalism, and like you say posting
vulnerabilities in web applications is pro capitalism, so i don't see
where the problem is. having it on may the 1st is just more shock and
awe and is more likely to get attention towards web application
security. there is no protest, there is web application security
awareness day, it just makes it more interesting being on may day. if


think i will print this off and use it when explaining "pressure of
speech" to my students
