Then I guess one can also close this bug as wontfix, suggesting any
people not to use such packages or try to improve the situation within

Who are my peers? I described the issue, no one brought up a valid
argument why this cannot be abused... what else do you want? A paper,
peer-reviewed and published in Nature?

"Your tolerance treshold" ... funny... but even if I'd be a jerk, other
users will thank you for hiding the security issue away by removing
tag, just because you don't like me.

As said before, I wrote you a mail when you said some unpleasant things
about me several times, but didn't get any reply...
The ball wouldn't be in my half of the fiel.

Well the only other
matter I can remember where we have had more direct interaction was
about the blob issues in chromium.
Apparently these are there and not just made up in my mind, others have
reported it as well and even when that specific last case where I was
involved was allegedly not possible to abuse, I still don't see a crime
in reporting such cases and having it cleared up.

Some people may not worry about software shipping blobs, or at least
having framworks in place to download such (like Firefox does with
OpenH264),... other however do and their case isn't less valid.

I'm afraid that others took that ticket up and made some big news out
of it even if it didn't turn out to be a big issue,... but that isn't
my fault.

So other than - I don't know the exact words you accused me last time -
"not contributing code" or something like this... I don't see much
wrong behaviour on my side.

Anyway... since apparently this won't get solved, may I suggest that we
close the bug as wontfix?
