Because I had it conflated with Encreep, a similar tool that was also  
recently posted here.  That's the closed-source one.  My apologies to  
those who feel I've misled them.

Again: so what?

The GnuPG-Users community has always been structured around GnuPG,  
OpenPGP, how to keep endpoints secure, and (to a lesser extent)  
privacy rights.  GoldBug does not touch on any of those except insofar  
as it borrows some code from GnuPG.

I have no personal animosity with GoldBug, except insofar as people  
associated with it continue to post identical (or near-identical)  
messages to many different mailing lists in an apparent marketing  
attempt.  For instance, what possible relevance could it have to  
OpenSSL?  Yet a very familiar-looking message was posted to  

Given that these messages appear to be a marketing attempt, *and*  
given that they're off-topic, I personally would appreciate it if they  
could be taken somewhere else.  Others may disagree with me, of course.
