Re: Security

You say it's not security by obscurity and seem to advocate using that? It doesn't really work, you know... Systems should be public knowledge so that any failings can be quickly found and corrected

I would say they're likening it to security by obscurity just because the system is pretty complex, enough to make it hard to replicate (not impossible, obviously).
