  Ah... so you're not interested in the answer.  You're interested in
arguing about it.

  You ask some of the leading RADIUS experts a question, and when you
get an answer, you tell them they're wrong.


  You aren't a RADIUS expert.  You haven't read the RFC's.  You don't
understand why the password is encrypted.  Rather than believe someone
who does understand RADIUS, you come to a false conclusion based on a
lack of knowledge, and on an intentional disregard of the truth.

  Why are you wasting your time and mine?
