Seems like Phil Zimmermann - the original author of PGP - have gotten his share of hate mail after the incidents in New York some time ago, an article in Washington Post says. And with that, the debate on encryption is back to square one.
Next someone will dig up the remains of the Wright bros. to slap them hard on the face for making aviation possible in practice. And finally BIC will be sued royally for making cigarette lighters weapons of war. Sigh.
