9 Perhaps I am missing something obvious, but how do others rehashing prior
10 research make one not want to publish their new original research? If no one
11 spoke publically about the TCP ISN problems back in '98 (or whatever), we
12 couldn't sit here today and say we knew about this issue already.
14 Are these people afraid that when they release their research they will not
15 get credited and then someone else comes later, states the same thing, and
16 gets the whole Internet in an up roar? Jealousy?
