Removed

Written by on Monday 04 May 2009

Removed due to near constant misrepresentation of the presented argument.

TLS was never presented as useless, but at the time the article was written (2009) we believed for chat rooms open to the public it added little value.

TODO: find archive.org link for it, but keep the original link and say that they have since removed the post.
