This thread, despite the tens of thousands of words expended, has not made that case. "Old Lady with power is bad at computer security" is far, far, far less important to me than keeping "you can still get quality health insurance even if you have a pre-existing condition" a rock-solid cornerstone of health insurance provisions.

So it is not "bad news", it is merely a weighing of priorities and long-term objectives for many of us, with those conclusions not matching your own.

This exchange is particularly mirthful. LOL, "Dopertown", because I recognized a non-issue when I saw it, especially compared to the things listed.

But, no, I was in "Dopertown" because, let's see, I felt that HRC was far less a security risk... and offered a far better slate of policy positions... than Donald Trump, and viewed this bullshit issue through such a lens.
