WHY in the heck aren't we letting them know what not to search?  I know
they've asked, I keep track of both efforts.  The whole point of both
efforts is to get it cracked, we all really win no matter who or what team
finds it because the goal is still reached!  Why is there no cooperation,
and is it on purpose?  Friendly competition is good in my view, gives us
something to compare things with.  So again, why aren't we letting them
know what not to search?

(P.S., I do not mean to be rude, I just think it's better for the overall
effort to share the info)
