Nothing strong.  My objection to STARTTLS was simply that it's overly
technical.  TLS is a recognizable term which might occur in service
documentation, but so might encryption.  No preference, I guess.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
