Thanks to everyone who responded to my query. It wasn't particularly
Linux/FOSS related to start with, but discussion appears to have gone
way off-topic now.

My conclusion from the responses here and elsewhere is that there isn't
some myth spreading around that .coms are "safer" than .orgs and that
the original comment was either mis-informed or somewhat confused.

Back to cutting excellent code now, everyone!

Bob Edwards.
