Sometimes I wonder why I don't just give up.

See this quote towards the very end:
"In Australia earlier this month, a majority of Sensis websites including Whitepages, Telstra Bigpond and Yellowpages had to remove advertising on their site after a local security professional and Microsoft MVP discovered malicious malware embedded in the ads."
For whatever reason, IT NEWS decided to omit my name from that paragraph, despite specifically mentioning that a "local security professional and Microsoft MVP' were involved, and I am finding it impossible to comprehend why they would do so.
I have been fighting malware for years, long before it became the "cause de célébrité" with the popular press, and I've done it all for free - given up my days, my nights, and my weekends - never charging a penny, fighting the good fight, and running up one hell of a personal debt in the process, but when my name is dropped like this, I wonder why I try so damned hard to protect internet users at large from malicious banner advertisements and hacked web sites.
I don't want to be patted on the back every damned day, I don't, but if you're going to mention something I did, and mention what I am, please... don't leave my name out. It's unkind and it's unfair.
