But, more seriously, this is something that has perplexed me -- but which I also have found oddly comforting: in the "desktop publishing era," anyone ought to be able to put together a web site that is nicely laid-out, informative, organized, with correct spelling and grammar. Why is it that extremist sites so often give themselves away by their horrid formatting? Is there some deep-seating psychological need to express their zealotry and extremism even at the level of their lay-out?

I'm pleased by it, to be sure! I would love to live in a world where evil -- or at least stupidity -- always betrayed itself in its seeming. But isn't one of the tenets of most religions that evil can come in a goodly guise? Why haven't so many of these creeps figured out how to present themselves convincingly?
