My response is the same as @Scriptos for this one. Why punish everyone for the actions of the few? I myself used private modules in a genuine way, and I am not going to waste my time proving it to you.
And do you think this would change by making the code public? If people figure out a popular admin script has backdoors, they delete it, then what? Every other admin is backdoored as well. Wait for another one to be made? I don’t think so. They’ll continue using it in hopes that something else will be made, or, they can make their own.
Not really. I myself have had a lot of uses with private modules. Genuine ones at that.
Suggest? What?!?!?! I am suggesting that people should put up with backdoors!?? Woah! I do not remember making that suggestion! I simply suggest that people should opt in to using private modules. They will be informed that they will be running code they cannot see, and they should only accept if they know it is non malicious. So, Terabyte services. Great example of why this would be a great option. It would also benefit me, a genuine user of private modules. I’m sure many others would benefit as well.
