Please read the Fesco ticket I referenced.  Such concerns are far from
isolated.  (I think they are unwarranted, but they neverless exist.)

As to the word ‘backdoor’, it's likely that Mosaab's first language
isn't English.  The word has some strong implications, sure, but it
brings across his concerns quite clearly.

Considering your own use of strong language, I find it rather strange
that you suddenly object to it, but maybe it helps you to understand
why some of us find it problematic.

The friend might not feel comfortable writing in English.

Please try to be a bit more welcoming.

He ended up with the two domains after doing a DNS reverse lookup.
