You know what - when nobody does embargoes, I'll consider your argument to
have a point.

In the meantime, I'm not in the least interested in your idiotic
arguments. Especially as you can't even read what I wrote:

Exactly. I don't embargo them. I refuse to have anything to even _do_ with
organizations like vendor-sec that I think is a corrupt cluster-fuck of
people who just want to cover their own ass.

They're just normal bugs.

But that also doesn't mean that I see any reason to make it obvious what
to do to trigger them, and cause problems at universities and such. So I
don't do "here's how to exploit it" commit logs, for example.

(If you haven't been at a univerisity, you don't know how many smart young
people want to "try it to see". And if you have been there, and don't
think it's a problem when they do and wouldn't be happier if they didn't,
you probably don't know what the word "empathy" means).
