I object to the condescending tone used here.
It's OK to be frustrated and it's also OK to say you're frustrated at
something. But emotional outbursts like this one aren't professional

Here is a really revolutionary idea. Why do we not, instead, start
using standard technical terms in their standard technical way?
This groups needs to stop re-defining well-established security
terminology, especially when the primary effect of those redefinitions
is to make everything less consistent and precise, not more.

Everyone says that having power is a great responsibility. This is a lot
of bunk. Responsibility is when someone can blame you if something goes
wrong. When you have power you are surrounded by people whose job it is
to take the blame for your mistakes. If they're smart, that is.
