Yes, sometimes it takes us longer than a couple hours. :)

And it's not "out of order", it's just unnecessary. Like security
problems, we prefer to handle them with the plugin author privately
first, because in many cases the plugin author was unaware of the
problem and will act quickly to remedy the issue. No need to publicly
give somebody a black eye unless they really deserve it.
