What problems exist in the system?

This last item is particularly disturbing, as it is strong evidence that treasonous parties have been using this particular algorithm (based off the timestamps of treasonous acts) as a communications medium, implying either total compromise of the generated data or an unprecedented level of coordination of treasonous elements. Needless to say, Treason-O-Meter ought to be swiftly investigated and shut down.

I dunno 'bout no wall fallin' or reactor randomness, but I can tell youse for a fact dat it's possible t'singificantly effect d'Realtime INFRARED Injury Report Index. Easy, even, if'n youse know d'right people. Which I'm not sayin' I do, mind. Interested parties what might be wantin' t'follow up on some'a dis-- purely f'academic purposes, understand-- should contact me through offline channels t'set somethin' up. Ask around OUS Sector; maybe some folks know me, maybe not.
