OpenBSD Okay, this is potentially very big news that really needs all the exposure it can get. OpenBSD's Theo de Raadt has received an email in which it was revealed to him that ten years ago, the FBI paid several open source developers to implement hidden backdoors in OpenBSD's IPSEC stack. De Raadt decided to publish the email for all to see, so that the code in question can be reviewed. Insane stuff.

I'm not saying you're wrong, or trying to be insulting (god, I hate that I have to qualify everything I say, but everyone seems so reactionary and prone to inferring..), but I honestly cannot make heads nor tails of anything in this post.

Please write this in your native tongue and have someone with a bit more experience in English translate it for you.
As it stands, your concerted effort at using this frustrating language (English is so complicated...) reminds me of a letter Henry Rollins once received from a student in the Czech Republic, which contained the sentence "On two concert I'm should collective photo, but such small, fat, bald-headed technologist be insane".
