I'm afraid you misunderstand my complaint, sir.
The issue isn't one of my being hopelessly drawn to squid posts even though I don't want to read about them, thus implying there's some sort of moral failing on my part, e.g. I can't help myself or something.
The issue is that I don't want to see anything about squid or anything even remotely squid related when driving by a blog about security. If I wanted to read about the latest developments in squid and squid-related technology, I'd surf over to the squidcider.net or something really wacky like that.
Thus my original vexation remains fundamentally unresolved: I want a firefox extension to block out all posts everywhere about squid. Or squid products. Or squid technologies. Squid salad. Yadda-yadda-yadda, ad nauseum. Not just here, but on the front page of the blog, and for that matter everywhere else on the net as well. Something to get rid of the damned squid once and for all! I might even pay $$$ for it, fer chrissakes!
I think the solution lies in somehow convincing Bruce that squid actually make us more secure personally, prevent ID theft, improve national security and their mere presence turns windows into OpenBSD. Therefore Bruce won't be compelled to write about them constantly, or at worst he will write about them only once and then we'll get back to reading and writing about the more pressing issues. Like security for example, which is my primary intent in visiting this blog in the first place.
As a viable alternative, allow me to present the concept of the domestic guinea pig, aka Cavia porcellus. See here for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinea_pig
Now if Mr. Schneier would only make it a point to repeatedly highlight the latest developments in guinea pig security, and how these small, furry potato-looking creatures make us safer in life, we might be treated to something that is at least cute to see and look at visually. NOT something icky and more or less disgusting to consider like... squid.
