Okay, okay, you got me, yeah, I'm a big FBI whore, in fact I'm actually J.
Edgar Hoover in disguise (and what a clever disguise it is).

Darlin', you've been listening to Carolyn Meinel and JP Vranesevich too
much.  Leave the conspiracy theories to the X-Files; the world just isn't
that complex.

Further -- if you were so concerned about us that you'd so blithely
believe rumours invented by someone too lazy to do any research as to the
truth, why don't you take rudimentary precautions before notifying us of
hacks?  Why use your real name in your email?  Why admit to the hacks when
you notify us?  We state all over our site that we don't assume that the
person who notifies us is responsible for the hack, which is why we don't
give up any information about who notified us without a subpoena...and
we've only ever received one subpoena.

But hey, who cares about facts?  Facts aren't nearly as interesting as
envisioning us as evil spooky fed plants trying to lure innocent,
trusting, pure hackers into incriminating themselves with web defacements.
