I think everyone appreciates the forewarning (even if not everyone
appreciates the manner in which it was delivered).  I think we do care
and we are fixing it.  I believe the developers of said packages have
a different idea of the risks involved than you and I don't expect
everyone to agree on specific software development or release

If you want to call people names do it on your own lists.
