Quote of the day—issor

I don’t think they seriously think ROT13 is a means of secure communication. I agree it seems to be confusing people enough to collect a good set of downvotes, but for the rest it’s just intended as a lighthearted joke. Everyone knows you at least need ROT14 to be secure.

Comment to Op-ed: I’m throwing in the towel on PGP, and I work in security
[I broke out into a laugh that Barb probably heard half way across the house.

Yeah. It’s a joke for computer nerds. And probably mostly old nerds.

  1. I sure wonder about the mind, if any, of the guy who wrote that original article. I didn’t read very far, but it seems to amount to “I’m too dumb to make PGP work so I’m giving up on it and writing this bizarre article”. The place it was published doesn’t help either; Ars Technica is occasionally useful but often contains sheer crud.

    • I keep trying to like Ars, but I just can’t. Some articles are great, but some are so full of Silicon Valley worship or sjw tripe that to it casts all articles into doubt. Add to that the commenters with clear hero worship issues and the sites anti 2nd stance and no thank you.
