    "Other than the modification to the index.html page no changes to the website were made."

      <ding!> the fight is on !

      Not sure why you got the downvotes, it's nice to meet an American who realizes why the country gets blamed so much, it shows there's hope. I have to admit though, I am out with popcorn also to see how this goes :D

    ...when they're russians?

      I think you need to say Central Asians and Eastern Europeans as they are probably not all in Russia proper.

        Do not forget that a lot of the NSA 'doodz' are Hispanic, Irish, Jewish ( diaspora from various countries) and even a few WASPs (ditto diaspora above).

        This Inertnet <sic> thing is truly a bit of a melting pot of ne'er do wells. Who remembers mike Corley on UK.Misc?
