SDMI was cracked, and is doomed: count on it: “We at The Register continue to note with dismay the creeping misuse of ‘off the record.’ If somebody tells you off the record that something is true, then you can be more sure than before that it is true, but you can’t actually mention them. Even if you don’t saying who they are. If they say the information is ‘non-attributable,’ then you can say what they said, but you can’t say who they are.”
