''deranged sys admins''
Derogatory & belittling attacks on your enemy is silly, the result is that you tend to dismiss them as fools and so not take them seriously. You may not agree with what they are doing (as I do not) but we must understand that they have intelligent people and are thus able confound the best that we can use against them. To assume any less is to leave us wide open.
We must also assume that their top commanders get better advice on secret communications than those lower down.
