Malware? Come on....

"The use of email filtering software that blocked delivery of 
suspicious emails and prevented transmission of unmarked or 
inappropriately marked emails. " What is a 'marked' email? Huh?

"The auditor also called on agencies to review log-in credentials 
after administrator or service account passwords were compromised at 
three of the four agencies examined in the report. " --- ADMIN! Let 
me guess: username - admin, password - password (or 12345 or asdfg)

Hilarious. And these people are running the country? (sorry if anyone 
doing this is a Link member; I doubt it, but thought I should still apologise)

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
