Humor The heartland turned vicious this week when an Oklahoma town threatened to call in the FBI because its web site was hacked by Linux maker Cent OS. Problem is CentOS didn't hack Tuttle's web site at all. The city's hosting provider had simply botched a web server. This tale kicked off yesterday when Tuttle's city manager Jerry Taylor fired off an angry message to the CentOS staff. Taylor had popped onto the city's web site and found the standard Apache server configuration boilerplate that appears with a new web server installation. Taylor seemed to confuse this with a potential hack attack on the bustling town's IT infrastructure.

We? There is no we. I will continue to post whatever seems suited. El Reg and the Inq may not be to everyone's liking due to their senses of humour, but i.e. the Sun Rock I/II stories have shown that they are pretty much reliable-- if you ignore the obvious humerous articles they post in between.

Please stop these nonsense comments. If you have a problem with a site linked to, just don't read the damn article (at the bottom of your browser you can see a link's destination on mouseover, in case you didn't know). Is it really that hard?

i already read this yesterday...

So, forgive my ignorance, but because you read it yesterday... I shouldn't report on it today. Mmmm, now that's what I call wrong logic.

It seems to me that the Reg is rather more reliable than the Inq. I can recall more than one recent story that's come from the Inq that turned out to be either flat wrong or badly distorted / misquoted / typo'ed / something...

Why the mod-down?

Why was the GP modded down?

1. The comment does not include personal attacks/offensive language.
2. The comment is not off-topic
3. The comment is not spam and does not include advertisements.

The tone, if anything, of the OSNews reponse is un-professional.
