......... Dr. Frederick B. Cohen is rumored to have said:
--> In response to my response (posted to firewalls) to Brent's unwarrented
--> comments (posted to firewalls) about my reply to a question on firewalls,
--> I got the following mail from Brent's automatic mail responder.
--> Talk about blatant commercialism!!!
Lay off Frederick, more people agree with Brent than care who wrote
their doctoral thesis on computer viruses.
Your silly retort to his moderator comment makes me believe that you
feel your "stature" must be defended. We care not for you credentials, nor
for your common sense observations. Please join us in debate and discussion
about firewalls and network security, but lay off the personal attacks, and
heed the words of thy moderator.

While most peoples' opinions change, the conviction of their
correctness never does.
