The goal isn't to feel more or less secure, nor am I suggesting that
this be done for me. The question is whether or not _others_ see any
benefit in this. Nor did I ask anyone else to care. I don't go to the
IRC channel to deal with overly aggressive people, but to help
newbies, and others whom I am able to.
