My bullshit is better than their bullshit.

Q. Why is Mega not to be trusted?
said by IDG News Service :

Q. Are there any other reasons why Mega should not be trusted?
said by IDG News Service :
A. If Mega's servers were compromised, it would also be possible for an attacker to deliver modified, malicious JavaScript, said Nadim Kobeissi, developer of the encrypted instant messaging program Cryptocat. It would also be possible for Mega itself to deliver malicious code.
Q. Original, clever cutting edge research.
Where's the sarcasm button around here?
