Re: strange notion?
Well said, Mike 137. I certainly agree.
However, what is even stranger and much more likely to be catastrophically self-destructive, is implementing dangerous things one needs to rely on only a very select chosen few knowing anything about ........ for discovery by others of such an algorithm/program outside of that relatively magical circle immediately becomes highly problematical in an era and areas where such as would be dirty great secrets are easily instantly conveyed and displayed virtually everywhere.
The quickest and easiest initial fix, trying to ensure the least amount of damage to systems if a fix to remedy the mistake or oversight, or whatever you would like to call it, is proposed to be in the pipeline for future trial deployment, is to handsomely pay whatever is needed to whomever or whatever is able to uncover and deliver such secrets. And if it is almighty bundles of flash cash, simply represented and nowadays presented by a suitably healthy current bank account total, is the situation saved by nothing of real value, and a devastating certain loss is transformed into a probably magical circular gain.
To that and/or those enamoured and captivated by fiat capitalism, is it no more difficult than that ...... and thus does one have to question the distinctly obvious lack of intelligence in those and/or that which would choose to fail to avail themselves of such an opportunity whenever they are able/enabled to.
