Lookout is so incredibly bad, both in usage and in security that one
suspects it was Microsoft's attempt to kill e-mail.
And, no, we frequently talk about bad products without making fun of their
names. In this case it is tradition. And, yes, those who use it are
threatened by it..
War is an ugly thing, but it is not the ugliest of things. The decayed and
degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is
worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to
fight, nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety, is a
miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made so by the
exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill
