Freakonomics, the famous blog on economics, is powered by WordPress, which is known [*] to have grave security vulnerabilities. Yesterday, a dangerous hacker managed to get access to their blogging software, and published an opinion on the regulation of prediction markets, which represents the total opposite of what Steve Levitt believes in. No doubt the hacker (who signed as “-The Australopithecus“-) will get caught by the Police. No doubt Steve Levitt will get out of his torpor soon and re-establish the truth. We will then give airtime to Steve Levitt’-s arguments, on Midas Oracle. We’-re with you, doctor Levitt.
[*] I know that for a fact. Midas Oracle was hijacked yesterday by a dangerous hacker who signed as “-The Barbecue”-. I’-m not responsible for what he said.
