The obvious question raised by WordPress blogs being spied upon by Honeypots and now hiding in the walled garden of Akamai where the spying is not so obvious is “Why not abandon WordPress?” and the answer is why bother.
I did a traceroute for my original site fatsavage.com site and the traceroute goes from Virginia to DC to New York then to Chicago where it hits a domestic Honeypot before passing back to DC and returning to Virginia 3 miles from the start. This is hardly an efficient use of backbone Internet resources. At least when your hidden behind the Akamai network, you don’t see the stupid efforts to spy on you and your users. Amazingly, a traceroute to my son’s site strategyst.com passes from Virginia to Boston to Chicago to go through the very same Honeypot as my site.
It seems that regardless of where I go, I will be observed and so will the people close to me.
I found one of my very inactive sites which used a stealth registration and a small hosting company which has a direct route from Virginia to the server without passing through any know Honeypots. However, I’m sure if there were anything that was negative about Domestic spying and the abuse of Government power, it would soon be spied upon. This site uses a WordPress blog so not all WordPress blogs are being watched.
There is no doubt that this is Domestic Spying and unrelated to any war on terror. When you do tracerouts from London, Pakistan, Austria or Australia, they all seem to follow the most direct paths without any detours for honeypot spying.
It’s more rational to abandon hope.
