Re: [tor-talk] List Administrivia

Some people are genuinely naive on a topic, yet get overly
enthusiastic about $RANDOM_IDEA that they have, then share it
immediately with the world.

Yes, it's very close to spam, but just in case the author of it was
just misguided, yet good hearted:
go do a _lot_ of reading. Crypto, as in good crypto, is hard. It's
conceptually mind bending at times, and mathematically challenging all
the time.

I profess to know not much of anything about good crypto - I don't
know much at all anyway. There's kernelnewbies.org for os kernels, and
I am not aware of something similar for crypto newbies.

May be go read the TrueCrypt manual and the GnuPG manual, and then
keep reading elsewhere.

And remember boys and girls, excitement != validity!

Banned for life from Debian, for suggesting Debian's CoC
is being swung in our faces a little too vigorously.
