I've finally gotten all the posts from Merriman, Barber, and May (no
relation), and am in agreement with them more so than I am with either
Sandfort or Donald. I guess democracy wins again, eh?

Not enough entropy here! MegaCrypt v3.7 is clearly a charade. Probably
an FBI sting to catch contract killers.

But David is right in his point.
