RE: [DMCForum] DML policies?

I did some time ago, and it made it through oddly enough.  I think it was
about how easy it is to change VIN plates and be able to pass a bad car off
as a good one.  I stated that the more people knew about things like this
the better off everyone would be, especially new buyers.  People would know
what to look for being altered.  It's even more critical since there is no
known record of frame numbers, body numbers and VINs matched to each other.

Ironically, someone recently asked about keys fitting other cars which is
where this moderator note came from.  I have heard, but have not verified,
that it is quite common for someone's keys to fit other cars.  Again, this
is something we should all know so we can better protect the car or have an
alarm installed or something.  Maybe it is just the lock cylinder that would
need to be rebuilt but I really don't know.

Security through obscurity is just easier, like keeping one's head in the

So who, exactly, makes these policies? Because this one is completely
and utterly stupid.

Someone should tell the DML moderators that "security through
obscurity" is worse than no security at all.
