What do you think about this??

By Michael Kassner Contributor ·
On several occasions, I have written about a well-known security researcher that goes by the name Moxie Marlinspike. It appears that he is on a watch list and gets detained at airports now:

I would release you from the prohibition about "feeling," as in, "How do you feel about this?"

It twists my gut.

Further, our boy needs to learn a thing or three about conduct in custody.

thing or three...

Can you give some details about these three things? Perhaps we could all use them sometime.

"thing or three"

Means a great deal more than your "three things".

I suggest that you, or that anyone else who has no inkling, are too far behind the curve to be caught up.

Actually there are five.

"You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
and Know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done"

It is interesting...

Obviously it's harassment. It's the big mean bully shaking down little kids for lunch money, just because he feels like it.

Moxie should have a looksee at their permissions, see what kind of a ruckus he can raise without giving them cause to shoot him dead. Anything short of that is what to do.

He should also warn them that connecting to his devices may cause irreparable harm to their systems. He might even make it so that it will...

And he should look into distributing himself, being dependent upon devices is unbecoming.

This is old hat, from every country. See also John Lennon.

Still doesn't make it right.
