E.g., DL in GF(2^n)^*: worst-case-to-average-case reduction is trivial, ancient, well known. Claiming to "miss" it is ludicrous. @cdavidcash

Often fascinating to see how bad science spreads: e.g. "lattice-based crypto is the only crypto with worst-case-to-average-case reductions."

@hashbreaker What are the other examples? OTP? How is it "bad science" to miss counterexamples, as opposed to, say, a misunderstanding?
