It is frightening that it is in earnest for you to find more value, without
expressing a reason to.

I am reminded of times projects have been disrupted, or behaviors and
situations been profiled preceding great harm

What do threats matter, when there is an opportunity to encrypt?

When something like this is posted, it is a blessing.  Ideally, everyone
would be using oramfs as much as they possibly could, for everything.  To
protect their privacy for the times when it ends up being relevant.

The threat is that we might stop doing that.  It is a very, very large
