So are you trying to suggest compression is not as secure as 
encryption? Have you even *read* the RFC in question?

The design goal of most compression algorithms is that *anybody* 
can take
the compressed data and get back the original.  The design goal of 
encryption is that *only the intended recipient* can decrypt and 
get the
original data back.

I think you have your terms mixed up, insert foot here LOLOL. And 
you didn't answer my question. Have you even *read* the RFC in 
question? And please, no "you must work at a fast food restaurant" 
cop outs this time.
