My response to Dr. Frederick B. Cohen:

I rarely write ANYTHING to the list unless I think it's absolutly
necessary and has a semblence of Crypto (keeps the SNR down).
I'm looking forward to doing something similar to the crack RC4
thing again.
Anyway, after reading the crap below I have been forced to comment.
For an individual that parades the title of Doctor (and the indication 
of intelligence that title should imply) you seem to lack the grasp of what
has been stated over and over again. If you can't study the source code,
find somone that you trust that can! Prove it *doesn't* work before you
knock it.  
Lastly, this interpretation of a threat from being added to a killfile
was the last straw.
Tell the FBI I sent the following Dr.Cohen :   PLONK!
I never play nice.
