I concur.  I've often argued that there is no such thing as "responsible
disclosure" -- it's a self-serving fiction concocted to satisfy the PR
needs of companies. [1]

I'll also note that this fairly conclusively demontrates that all the blather
about how the US government wants to promote "cybersecurity" is 100% bullshit.

[1] The same companies that have the arrogance to demand "responsible
disclosure" from people who owe them *nothing* are very often the same
companies who've failed to provide "responsible coding" to their own
customers.  *cough* Adobe Acrobat security hole-of-the-week *cough*
