Get out your tin foil hats, people. You're witnessing the birth of a new conspiracy. According to a few people who mostly go nameless, rather than a fire and explosion at the Houston data center, the whole thing has been some kind of bit theatrical exercise to cover up for.....here it comes.....a government raid.
Now I'm all in favor of some creative writing, but c'mon people lets get this right if we're going to do it. Depending on your favorite brand of government evildoers, this was either way to big or way too small. Those who favor the grand massive screen would expect a very small team of server-snatchers while distracting us with a massive fireball and lots of terrific looking flames. Those who's tastes run to the X-files type cover-ups would expect some kind of black pajama wearing ninja-seals to sneak in and copy the entire contents of the building onto a USB thumb drive while a graphical image shows the copy happening on screen as a scrolling progress bar.
If you're going to have a secret government raid covered up with a small fire and days of outages, there has to be a good reason. In the interest of at least making this an INTERESTING conspiracy, I invite you to join me in brainstorming some theories. Who knows, someone may link to this site as a reference for their own madness.
First, there's the obvious:
Child Pornography on the Servers, Spam, and of course Terrorism
Then comes my personal favorite, if only for the fun factor in watching the falling on slashdot:
The RIAA is behind the raid, to shut down file sharing servers -- which it will turn out were only sharing copies of a 1974 Neil Diamond album.
Perhaps the most easily sold to the media:
The Cisco Routers were actually counterfeits and had compromised Chinese firmware that was allowing state secrets to be sent back to China.
Then there's the pure fun:
The Duke Nukem Forever beta was on one of those servers
What's your poison? You tell me. I'd love to see at least 10 good reasons
