Security through obscurity does not work. Almost all C-style memory
management bugs are obscure, until someone fuzzes it. Race conditions
are obscure too... DJB did a lot to dissuade the idea of the downfalls
of security through obscurity.

Poor HTML though, isn't the realm of templating rather than stock WP
itself? My handcrafted HTML is not good by any standard, but the
artists/designers can certainly do a better job than I can.

I wanted to get a template or something from fiver, but by the looks of
it they're all (first few clicks I looked at) setup to make them for WP.
