    Your comment should really be HR'ed, both for ad hominem and for advocating a CT, but since I'm engaged in a thread with you, I am forbidden from dropping the donut.

    •  Sorry, once again you fail to present a rational (0+ / 0-)

      argument for your thesis.

      There is absolutely no ad hom in my comment.  There is also no advocacy of CT in my comment.

      MS for good and innocent reasons gives information as to certain flaws to large customers, including  US govt agencies in advance of giving it to the hoi polloi - you admit this.

      According to you, however, our government spooks, the NSA, CIA, FBI, DEA and all others of that ilk, would never, ever even consider exploiting any exploitable flaws so received because blather, blather, blather.

      I disagree with the theory that some morals or magik keeps the spooks in line, that is not CT, because there is not one logical reason nor any evidence to support the assertion that they are above that sort of thing.

      It would not be CT even if there were some support for your theory, because I advance no assertion of the existence of a conspiracy. That is a pre-requesite for a conspiracy theory.

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
