Chris,
You have repeatedly stood up asking VoIP software to be more transparent
about their encryption. You have repeatedly stood up when the media
overblew coverage into hype.

However, Silent Circle remains *the only case* where you remain mentioned
regularly in articles on the company, where you make a point to completely
ignore that they are posting everywhere on their social media that they are
developing "unbreakable encryption", and marketing it, closed-source,
towardsactivists. When I confront you about this, you publicly accuse me of
"soliciting a hit piece" (!!) against Silent Circle.

That is what I have a problem with: A huge, clear, obvious double standard
strictly made available for Silent Circle.
