I don't quite follow. Why is it fine that you discuss DoS, but it's not
fine when others discuss DoS ?

You're statement comes across as an attempt to shut down a possibly
fruitful discussion. Not sure if you intended it that way.

We could open a new issue to discuss faster alternatives to siphash
and then close this one, or simply rename this issue, if it bothers you
that we're not strictly focusing on siphash 1-3 :-)
