Let me reiterate - I'm not relying on anyone for anything.  I made a simple
request for help.  I'm truly sorry that this offends you... actually I'm not.

Perhaps another list would be more appropriate for someone of your beliefs.

Nothing is impossible - it just takes me longer.

So what?  Like I really care about conclusions you have drawn?  You've made
your point (abundantly).  You are convinced that I'm a lamer - and that's just
fscking fine with me.

Now go away.

I didn't make my request to "further the full disclosure process" - I did it
to help me learn.  It's evident you have a problem with that.  Consider that
fact duly noted and then go away.

Faulty analogy.  I don't have an "assignment" to turn in and be graded on.
I'm not trying to steal someone else's work and pass it off as my own.  I just
want to learn more about this particular exploit.  I'm sorry that's such a

I do know that if I had spent this time researching instead of replying
to your horsepiss e-mails, I'd be further along.

And with that note, I bid you adieu.  Flame me all you want.  You've degraded
me enough - and hopefully this has served as a sufficient launchpad for
inflating your ego.
