Re: What's the point?

But logs don't grab passwords, the computers store them there because the programmers wrote logging statements putting them there!

Come to think of it, can you imagine a computer system where systems are individually sentient? "The logging system grabbed that info because it suffers from kleptomania, and it's also a hoarder." "I keep getting spam in my inbox because the mail system feels that my love life needs improvement." "The compiler has been taking hits off the bong again."
