Spies, pirates, thieves?

Sounds pretty American to me. Maybe we should give them citizenship.

"The relevant commission .." "The relevant report .."

Do they not quite understand how to use the word 'relevant', or have they cleverly constructed a canned statement that can be used in many circumstances? Maybe they expect to have to use it often in the future.

Wow! I'm more important than I thought

I've noticed for some time that IP addresses registered to China are...overrepresented in attacks on servers I manage. Even my home computer.

Looks like Obama's "Pivot to the Pacific" is pivoting

Re: Go Phish

I've had them knocking on my "door" since 2005, when they were so arrogant that they didn't even try to hide the IP address of the military bases they were coming from. Wait for it - "OH but that was a re-direct from a bot net!!!"

Yeah right! ;)
