It is wise to remember that although many of the posters on this
list consider it "community" that we have lurkers with "other"
intentions.  This may vary from script kiddies to the media.

Even when one exposes the issues in one's network/equipment/etc. one
still airs dirty laundry.  The trick is to make sure it stinks as
little as possible.  Unfortunately, the longer the dirty laundry sits
at the bottom of the pile, the worse it will stink when it ends up on
the top.
