Re: paranoia

Not so. I would trust nobody's "reputation" to vouch for the pristine state of a tchotchke they are offering me, no matter who they are. The knowledge that someone from PR in their organisation hired a conference organizer outfit who outsourced the trinket procurement to a bauble personalization joint shipping the cheapest mass-produced stuff directly from Alibaba fills me with very much zero confidence that anyone interested along the chain did not add a little something to the whole batch. I DID buy local-retail-store-sold photo frames that came malware-laden straight from the factory you know.
