::You're missing the point. The issue is adoption by contect providers of

::(read M$) then you are screwed.

If you think you have a hard time going to sites like www.honda.com
(flash site and they didn't check if anything else used it) and
www.capitalone.com (for ssl banking/CC manangement)..it's going to get
worse. What if they do a check on your "trusted" application and it
doesn't return the right info. You will be locked out. And if you modify
your software to send bogus info..you better believe they will record
it. And after Herr Ashcroft is done over the next few years..get ready
to do hard time for stupid shit. It's probably a real fear with the
ChickenHawks that are running the U.S. Gov right now..and maybe for the
forseeable future..since most Americans are SO scared right now that all
those Chickenhawks have to do is say *boo terrorist* and they will have
the power to do anything they damn please as long as people have the
illusion they are safe. It's all crap.
