Wow, you're really on a roll with stupid comments today.

This blog post was written before SSLMate even sold EV certs, but to set the record straight on how SSLMate's EV certs work, the details are in fact re-validated by the certificate authority every time the cert renews. But, since a company's details don't usually change, SSLMate re-uses the details that were submitted with the original cert by default, reducing the amount of work an SSLMate customer has to do compared to other certificate vendors, but without compromising the rigor of the EV issuance process.
