1- We could do this ad infinitum, but "this list's lack of usual moderation
does not mean your opinion is
either respected, welcomed, or desired by anyone," Mr. Mugabe. But hey, at
least Valdis was on topic, right? Circular arguments get us everywhere!

2- Further, I for one welcome Valdis' opinions. He is well-spoken/written,
makes excellent points, and regularly demonstrates a high degree of
intelligence and understanding. Quite frankly, that earns much more respect
than whiney immature posts like the below. So, that makes one person on this
list who welcomes it, and not the "no one" you were implying when you seemed
to speak for an entire list...

Mr. Kletnieks,

This list's lack of usual moderation does not mean your opinion is
either respected, welcomed, or desired by anyone.  Like my father
always says, "Give a nigger a podium and he'll rap for anyone.
Give a white man a podium and he'll beat his chest like a primate
and spew mindless propaganda to anyone that will listen with the
hope that the senseless banter will impress those less intelligent
than he."

And you, my friend, are not black.

Ironically, your own quote"company"quote offered penetration
services at the insane pricing scheme of "we'll pentest0r joo
for free
and if we find something you can pay us to find other holes!".

And how, exactly, is that an "insane" pricing scheme?  If you
think about
it for a bit, it actually makes quite a bit of sense - Snosoft
needs to prove
they're in fact good enough to be able to find the holes you're
paying them
to find, or it doesn't cost anything.

That *sure* as hell beats paying $100K for a pen test, and then
finding out
that you hired a bunch of asswipes who can't find holes.
