"Rice" isn't the issue.  It's the forced automatic opting-in of people's machines to the project.  Well ... that and retsof's petty arrogance, blind ignorance and general crappy attitude towards anyone that doesn't "toe the line" and just take what they're given

Noticed a lot of "Edited for tolerance" notations.  No doubt retsof meant his own. ::)

I know....this seems like a rerun of what happened last time they added a new project.


Would think with the attitude and intolerance that WCG would do more about it than edit in his case.....IE, why is someone intolerant of others representing them as a CA :doh:
