In fairness, there don't seem ot be too many apologists for once. Presumably, this is so stupid that even Apple fans cannot think up a way to minimize it.
We're also not all "fanbois" or "apologists", but simply people who want desktops to work to an acceptable standard of safety and security, which until now happened to be easiest to achieve by using MacOS based systems. Frankly, I am both appalled and incensed by this and I feel rather let down by Apple that this ever made it past QC.
I expect more than just the usual silence from Apple on this. It is quite simply unacceptable - there ARE no excuses for this.
