Whatever happened to disagreeing with someone while still using their
code, based on technical merit? I am not sure if you'd want to argue
with the intent or practical use a particular technology, while at the
same cryptography is being discredited on the ground of being used for
dis-likable activities, with an outlook to establishing investigative
powers, restrictions of use or mandated back-doors?
