Re "Beyond Foul Words," editorial, April 28: The Times believes that Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell deserves credit for advising the National Assn. of Broadcasters to develop a voluntary code of conduct. First, it is not a code of conduct. It is a code of speech, which, unlike conduct, is protected. Second, every dictatorship has been accompanied by a voluntary code of conduct: It is called self-censorship, due to fear. So, please explain to those of us who are too slow in giving up our freedom of speech: Why does he deserve credit?

I must compliment you on your paper's excellent coverage of the Anaheim Rams. Every day you provide detailed information on their players, new offensive and defensive philosophies, and generally provide Los Angeles fans with a good insight on what the Rams' prospects are for winning their division. On the other hand, the most in-depth article you've presented this summer in regard to the Los Angeles Raiders was about how Lester Hayes feels about the new NFL dress code. Maybe I should be looking in View for fashion or Metro for local events?

Say hello to Robin Seggelmann. The name may not ring a bell, but his handiwork has gained worldwide notoriety. Seggelman, it seems, is the poor soul who wrote the flawed piece of code that has come to be known as the Heartbleed bug. According to his profile on the LinuxTag conference website, Seggelmann is a " researcher for the transport protocols of the Internet. Occasionally his work find its way into standards of the Internet Engineering Taskorce (IETF). In a manner of speaking he helps writing the technical 'laws' of the Internet.
