    i know it's hard to accept that people whose carefully-contrived 
    anti-establishment media image we've all admired (and envied) can be such 
    sh*ts, but there it is.  you're in denial, bud.  
    the proof exists.  i can't publish it for two reasons: 1) the source has 
    requested anonymity; and 2) the L0pht cheese-eater involved would be subject 
    to retaliation.  
    if my proof is cr*p, then @Stake will sue The Register and win their
    case in court.  but don't hold your breath, lol.
