And it's funny how technology bring new, unwanted, thing.

Before CD's we had never heard of the aluminium eating fungus - then the alu CD's arrived and the fungus started eating the layers.

Now we have gold, silver, platinum, etc layers - soon we may have gold eating fungi.. or a bacteria that thrives on silver..

Oxidation has been around way before bacteria (or fungi, for that matter) even started to show up on earth

The idea behind using gold is, precisely, because it's the metal most resistant to oxidation.
