More Clueless and Paranoid People

How to look like idiots the fun and easy way. People who know nothing about the internet – and the way hosting works – really had ought to consider whether they’re even remotely qualified to make outlandish and paranoid assertations. Okay, so there are no real qualifications for making outlandish and paranoid assertations, so it would perhaps be best if they considered whether there were any actual facts to back up their, ahem, outlandish and paranoid assertations.

It happens again, and again, and again

Yes, it’s easy to see conspiracy theories everywhere. But some conspiracy theories are founded on fact and reason and logic; others on ignorance, stupidity, paranoia, and willful misinterpretation of the facts. The latter, alas, are not in short supply.

I’m not going to say anything else about this tinfoil-hat circle-jerk of ignorance, except that – as with the case of AfterDowningStreet.org – it demonstrates the importance of having websites hosted with a person or company that actually knows what they’re doing. Clearly, that’s not the case here, for one reason (misplaced altruism?) or another (being ignorant cheapskates).
