Re: Tech Staff to Boss: It's your fault

And, as I've implied, every decryption key should work for only a fraction of the total data.

Re: Scientific Misconduct

There is one other aspect of this that becomes problematical, and that is the potential for someone to do original science but without the linguistic background to make the English version readable, does the cut-and-paste to get legitimate work out [more]

Re: Russia: An Alternate View

Russians have a vastly darker view of the world than we do. I married one, and I have seen this in action.

They also have been through it all before.
