Their is not a backdoor in PGP period!

You should actually read the links you shared, because neither has
info or proof their is a backdoor in PGP!

How is this a backdoor?

Hey ****ers who think you are so smart. I will send you an encrypted
Winrar file. Then you can break it and show me how it's done. Deal? I
have encrypted a rar file. Where can I send it so you can crack it a
nd show everyone how easy it is to crack a Winrar encrypted file. I
bet my house. Enough of words....enough of reading articles...where
is the proof? Who is willing to crack my winrar file? Put your money
where your mouth is.. walk your talk...anyone?

I bet Skype has a back door now.

Skype was down the other day. I know that they and others have been
requested to add a back door. I would be surprised if they have not.
Skype is U.K., right?

But I wonder. If a person was using portable skype, not installed, ran
it only after firing up a VPN, opened it up and ran it sandboxed with
Sandboxie, then deleted the Sandbox, what could be done with that back
door? just curious.

I bet your entire family winces when you enter a room.

Just out of morbid curiosity, how do you even manage to get yourself
motivated to post? It can't be fun for you any more after making a
fool of yourself so many times, can it? In fact the last two days
have been so horrible for you, you just had to dig back to Tuesday to
find a post you could reply to without embarrassing yourself so much
even you can't stand it. Pretty sad considering your lack of self
respect.

Seriously. Why do you bother? You can't honestly believe anyone sees
you as anything but a clown any more, can you? Don't you have
anything you could be doing that would be a bit less of a nightmare
for you, like burning yourself with lit cigarettes or finger painting
with your own feces?

Nothing, you have solved the riddle.

I remember reading a while back that at some tech conference an NSA
representative told the attendees that NSA is offering "billions" to
any corporation or entity that can give them access to Skype
communications. This would make sense -- all they have to do is buy
their way into Skype. Since Skype is owned by E-bay, the NSA can just
strong arm Ebay into putting in a backdoor (and with an offer of a
lot of money).
