Yeah, for some reason that didn't register and I managed to make it through the article. Until the last couple sentences, that is, when they try to conjecture that Hillary Clinton had something to do with it.

True story: My uncle voted against Bill Clinton in both 1992 and 1996.  He died 16 years later at the age of 93.  That Clinton death count just keeps on growing.

We just passed the 27th anniversary of Poindexter and North (et al.?) deleting the PROFS messages with their discussion of Iran-Contra.  And the 27th anniversary of the messages being restored from backups.

Even the tech advice from AT is completely retarded.

Also check out the last name of the author... makes this line more reasonable:

Three computers were stolen during that break in and police eventually arrested a petty thief for the crime. Lawyer Schulman speculated:
"We feel like we're in a movie. It's nuts. It makes us wonder . . . . maybe we've got something we don't even realize or maybe they're worried about something."
Yes, they have information that could be embarrassing to State Department officials - especially the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who I hear tell may run for president.
But that wouldn't have anything to do with this, would it?


As in this would only be reasonable to American Potatoheads. Other people would want evidence before jumping to such conclusions that would be gee really convenient for them politically.

What's really dumb is you can do your own backup of Gmail messages and yes, that includes if you have things configged in IMAP and yes you can config IMAP not to necessarily delete your messages that have already been deleted on the server (not sure I'd recommend such a set up if you don't like manually managing your boxes though).

The entirety of that "article" (other than the last few sentences you noticed) was just a copy-and-paste job from the NY Post.  So still derpy, but not AT levels of idiotic.

Crotchrocket Slim: As in this would only be reasonable to American Potatoheads. Other people would want evidence before jumping to such conclusions that would be gee really convenient for them politically.


The guy is a State Department whistleblower.  He has evidence of wrongdoing of senior State Dept officials in his emails.  He is bringing down careers here.  Because of him, some people may go to jail.  Suddenly, one day all of his emails are magically deleted.  His lawyer's office was burglarized and computers were stolen.

Even Brick Tamland from Anchorman can put this together.  Turn off your blinders, man.  Obtaining evidence of who hacked a system is difficult to obtain, especially for someone not technical.  The evidence is that the emails are gone.  That's the proof.

The alleged coverups included keeping quiet separate IG investigations that found that members of then-Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton's security detail had engaged hookers and that the Belgian ambassador had solicited underage prostitutes.

Are there standards around when they're referred to as hookers vs. prostitutes? Are they only hookers if they do blow with you, or is it because they charge under a certain dollar amount? Maybe if they're underage they're always a prostitute?

Allow me to help you out. The answer is no. It's a single-purpose troll, who only exists to complain about libs. In threads that have nothing to do with politics, he/she/it still appears to try to blame liberals for it.

It's a vein of pure derp. You have such an embarrassment of derp riches nowadays; our grandchildren will someday ask us why we never tried to conserve any of it for future generations. Some scientists say we've already reached Peak Derp, others say it's a renewable resource that can never run out, and will soon be too cheap to meter.

I'm a pessimist; Derp is finite and one of America's last great exports. We should treasure it, if only so our grandchildren can experience the Great Herps of Derp that used to thunder across our glowing screens, even if only in carefully maintained national preserves.

//please consider a donation to the Derp Preservation Society. Any amount will be appreciated.
