I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

In my dream, the company was Microsoft, and the Ryan Phillipe-type had pointed out privacy and/or architectural problems with Passport and/or .NET (in hopes of impressing MS with his skillz such that they would give him a job). For this, goons tracked him down until he and his family levitated to Prague.

I don't quite get that last part.
