A reason to hate Tuttle, OK

Tuttle what?

Yeah, I'd never heard of the place either, but the city manager's total lack of a clue is going to earn the town a black mark in the minds of IT workers everywhere.

Short version- this guy doesn't seem to know the difference between an OS, a web server, and spyware, and as a result threatened to sic the FBI on Linux maker CentOS for "hacking" the city's web site. The story is funnier than it sounds, as well as more aggravating.

Here's a transcript of the e-mail conversation between the bonehead in question and CentOS's lead developer. You can't write comedy this good. :-)

I don't find it aggravating, just hilarious. It's too bad he didn't actually call the FBI because that would have gotten his ass beaten, politically speaking.

Kudos to the CentOS crowd for taking it in stride and helping the idiot out!
