no choice but to post attacks without any review by anyone else before

experience in this field lead to most of my posts being half-baked and
ignorant of prior work.  If you say "go research the prior work first", go
suck an egg.  I do that all the time.  You can't absorb this whole field in
a few months.

son told me, "Dad, I didn't know you liked being evil."  I responded, "But
only evil for good."  :-)

We at https://reddit.com/r/crypto would be interested. Discussions about
the cryptographic security of implementations are more than welcome.
Cryptanalysis in particular. (Plus, you can frequently edit prior posts
with updates without spamming all the participants.)
