There are exactly seven people on the planet who will actually make
different surfing decisions based on the symmetric key size shown in a
browser, and you're one of them - I don't know where the other six are.

When the majority of people can't figure out whether they are visiting
their bank or not, will say "Sure, accept that SSL cert" even when ID'd as
"Joe's Phishing Gang", and believe that the McAfee A/V which came with
their Dell PC 3 years ago is still current, your being hysterically
concerned about keysize (as you have on BroadbandReports for years)
sure seems like nothing in perspective.
