What a pity. Here I tell you that your piece is well-written, informative, and passionate, and your response...? That I can't "appreciate others' beliefs or preferences".

Brother, you're confusing appreciation for your article with agreeing with it. Those aren't the same things.

But you're right that I don't agree with your position. As does the larger world of security, privacy, and transparency professionals. Those folks have made clear that open-source software is far superior to closed-cource code. That's especially true when it comes to guarding something as important as access to all of our usernames and passwords.

I'm not a poor example of a divided community: I'm a fabulous example of an always-evolving and constantly-debating community. That's what makes tech such a cool space.

Speaking of full transparency: did you purchase your 1Password license or was it provided to you by the folks at the company who now know you?
