I stumbled upon this hilarious interchange between city manager in Oklahoma who mistook the initial unconfigured welcome screen of the server software running his website for the devious work of a hacker and the bewildered linux developer trying to help him. Anyone who has ever done any kind of technical support will recognize the beauty of it.

Who gave you permission to invade my website and block me and anyone else from accessing it??? Please remove your software immediately before I report it to government officials!! I am the City Manager of Tuttle, Oklahoma.
