6 I beg to differ. It has achieved that everyone who's
7 interested can now see quite clearly how the priorities of
8 Gentoo Linux are. I am not really judging your priorities.
9 It's free software. You can do whatever you want.
11 But I, at least, find it useful to know that spending a
12 couple of hours implementing an insanely simple procedure
13 that would prevent the insignificant number of, say, 10
14 people having their machines compromised -- machines with
15 all their personal data, e-mails, love letters, income tax
16 declarations, health records, etc. -- is not a priority.
