Phrased differently: "The horse has already left the barn, and Gadi is warning
you that there's a horse possibly munching on your front lawn already".

Which would you rather have if you actually had a network to run - Gadi and
HD Moore telling you that the bad guys have a point-and-shoot for the boxes
you use to run your net, or them *not* telling you about the point-and-shoot?

Hint: Anybody who thinks HD Moore is a major part of the problem is probably
more a part of the problem than HD is.
