Your failed attempt at mind-reading is as rude as it is wrong. Why
make incompetent guesses at something you can so easily discover by
asking a simple question? (That's a rhetorical question, I don't
expect a reasonable answer for why you would engage in such pointless
and rude behavior).

So you presume. Personally, I have no particular axe to grind on
theories for why Theora is relatively safe. I was just trying to make
my best guess. I think you have brought up some good points, but your
bizarre reaction to my speculation implies to me that you've got
something akin to a religious bias going on.
