You don't get to be insulted by my posts unless you actually know better,
and when you don't say what you know, you haven't proved to anyone else
that you know any better. Any six year old can throw around insults and
pretend that they know the answer. So if you are insulted, you don't get
to say anything unless you're willing to back your anger up with facts.
You've got to prove yourself. Otherwise, you're just going around bitching
at people, and nobody respects that kind of person. They contribute
nothing to the discussion but background noise.
Incidentally, using a command line password switcher gives a quick attacker
plenty of time to login. Your system isn't half as good as the ones Nico
Kadel-Garcia talked about. So much for your "expertise".
