For the moment, I do not think we should concern ourselves with binary data
*and* network protocol. This introduces an additional complex layer on a
problem which may already be out of anyones control --- at least in this
At the moment what bothers me most is the fact that I have the strong feeling
that those who assembled these data bases were either ignorant of the problem
or chose to ignore it. This is evidenced by the total lack of any comment
about the subject by the distributers.
The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
