Just because the system can be exploited/open to abuse doesn't mean the benefits of implement such system should be ignored. As long as things are tracable and transparent, I say give the security researchers the BOD.

You have to have faith i nthe system...Exactly like how MPs can't be lobbied and parlimentary votes bought right? :|
