Amen. I was really amused when an exploit was found in fetchmail and
there was extremely little response from ESR. Guess if he can't leverage
the power of his ego and his minions he's helpless :)

If you carefully examine the intercal package (which was not
available for a month depsite emails about it being a 404), you will
discover that . is in ESR's PATH.

This thread is almost as scary as the large intercal program Knuth wrote
