Given our history of NEVER publishing vendor advertisements or endorsing a
product, can you explain why we should break that 2+ year trend and
support yours?

Wouldn't it be better for us to support and advertise a company like eEye
who actually discovered the worm, released a full disclosure advisory, and
did so in a fashion as to not blatantly ambulence chase and advertise
their product?
