Your seriousness in regard to the obligations that those needs incur seems to have only come up to denigrate Steve for having laid bare the situation, and in what appears to have been a few minutes worth of research.

Irresponsible disclosure is a serious problem, yes.

Are you endorsing irresponsible disclosure...?

And you are actually proud of trolling...?

Not sure what's so difficult about asking us to just change the text. We're happy to address you concerns. You don't need to troll us to get a response, in fact you're more likely to get a better one when you don't troll.

Someone wanted to know about truecrypt alternatives, and I here was my reply:

See this list on ArsTechnica's forum:

I work for Tao Effect LLC, our software is on that list, and you can read about how its plausible deniability compares to TrueCrypt's here (forgive this subreddit's insane color scheme):

In case anyone on this list wants a license, here's a code for 15% off: LIBERATIONTECH

There are 10 of them and you can use them on They expire November 1st.

I can also change the website's wording for you. Just send us an email with how you would prefer we phrase our website's text: support at

Kind regards,
Greg Slepak

Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.
