You leave your info all around the web all the time. Willingly most of the time. Also, let's consider that everything you wrote is actually happening just like you said - doesn't that just reaffirm the banality of those exploits? In reality, these exploits have been around since forever. What's new is that now loud minority is screaming about them now that they know the exploits exist. Just like "PC vs Mac" commercials and how PC is doomed because viruses this and that. I am not saying that it's good that there are holes in intel's CPU, but I am not going to flail my arms and scream and go buy AMD because of it.
