Just a thought, comments on the seriousness (or lack thereof) of this
act might end up in the hands of lawyers on both sides, enough of us
are certainly in the "expert witness" class.

There's nothing wrong with that per se but we might want to reflect on
whether we want to be in court repeating what we're chatting about,
possibly subpoenaed, or hearing that comments we made were used by one
side or another.

All I mean is you (all of you, me too) might change your mind after
more reflection, we're too accustomed to casual chatting on these
networks but in this case anything we say can be key material in a
very serious legal case.

My interview that was published today in the Middlesex News contained
several comments on just that, I still feel they were reasonable, but
when reading it over the above occurred to me, especially with the
headline "Expert Says Virus Was 'Simple Bug'".
