Re: Another virtual land/fiat money grab guaranteeing nothing good
The ridiculous point being made, Cav, was pentesters offering services concerning the security, and potentially the continued existence of other companies, being vetted and licensed. I.e. regulated to some degree and penalised with fees they have to pay to third party others for their service to clients.
It’s all rather parasitic.

Another pertinent impertinent question to have answered
If you do work in security, and are licensed, and have access to the corporate office and/or network and do damage by either failing to do your job competently or deliberately doing it to sabotage your employer, does your employer fire you and consider suing you and/or the licensing authorities for the damage caused?

Re: The American Dream via Stealthy Internetional Security Threats and Surreal Treats
The move by the OpenSSH team therefore may be a prudent one. After all, who knows what the future might hold?
Regarding the future, the one decision which can be made and implemented, but which up until now has been catastrophically inadequate and increasingly self-defeating, is whether it is to be more of the same or something/many things quite different.
Use your imagination and common sense to realise what will deliver immediate and fundamental radical change and changes. The correct answer is surely blindingly obvious.
On the flip side, is it moronic to contemplate and accept insanity ….. “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” …. as a future “If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again” driver?
And Uncle Sam itself, if you can believe its usual assortment of serial warmongers, is under sustained hostile attack from the future and quantum machinery ……
This is important since quantum computing is already a threat to national security. National data is currently being stolen and stored with the intention of decrypting it as soon as these powerful quantum computers come on-line. …….. https://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/articles/2022/4/13/unentangling-the-quantum-security-executive-order
…….. but then they and their allies are always appearing to be assaulted by some ethereal Tom, Dick or Harry in order to enable them to justify lease lending newly perceived/freshly conceived novel victim clients increasingly expensive exploding tools and rapidly depreciating assets which they are forever indebted to try and repay with a punitive tax on the wealth of the yet to be born and innocent. It is the for profit [extra money for nothing] capitalist way, is it not ….. but it has had its day, has it not ? It is stale and failed/stagnant and unproductive?

Yes, he/they should resign immediately, honourably ….. or be kicked both out of office and the Conservative party for bringing Parliament and politics into disgraceful disrepute ….. a situation from which fellow honourable members may never ever recover the comfort of being believed honest and not crooked to the core in service of themselves and those that contribute funds to their party’s causes.
And for all to be led to believe that Boris Johnson is the best that Britain has to offer from a population of 67.1 million and there be no one better able to pretend that they lead a United Kingdom, is a revealing and damning indictment on the sorry state of a relatively tiny nation and the Parliamentary democracy system too.
