If what you say is true, then your posting the theory of this method (which you
claim to have done a year ago) already puts you in grave danger. Why are you

They're protecting their turf!!!
The only way to get the attention of the NSA would be to factor a very

Besides, if they did the right thing, they'd go to the FBI--as they
probably can't even get to the NSA--and then they'd end up imprisoned

Nope. I'm safe now because mathematicians won't acknowledge the

That means I can simply talk about the result as a research result--

More than likely researchers in some other country than the US will
realize it works, and the news will spread rapidly, get back to this
country, and then I'll chat with the NSA without worry of
