Texe Marrs, a staunch defender of KJV-onlyism, friend of Peter S. Ruckman and advocate of many conspiracy theories involving what he calls the “Illuminati,” stated that yesterday’s crash of many of the blog sites at Blogger.com was directly due to, what he called, “the biting evil satire of the Tominthebox News Network.”
“This was a curse from God.” Said Marrs. “He was shutting the mouths of the scoffers at that infernal website. For all you people who are upset by your blogs not working yesterday you need look no further than the Tominthebox News Network. They dared to raise their hand against the Lord’s anointed!”
The problems began early in the day when certain links within the site began rendering a strange error message with the code “bX-vjhbsj.” Marrs went on to further say that the code itself is evidence of “Satan’s work on the blogsite.”
“That strange code! Note that code, ‘bX-vjhbsj!’” Said Marrs. “You’ve got six lower-case letters. That’s one 6. You also have a large X, which is the Roman numeral 10 and a minus sign followed by a ‘v’ which is Roman numeral 5. The X is next to 1 lowercase letter so that’s 10-5+1 = 6. That’s another 6! Finally, ‘b’ is the 2nd letter of the alphabet and ‘x’ is the 24th, and 2+24=26. Take into consideration that there are two ‘j’s after the minus sign, and ‘j’ is the 10th letter of the alphabet, so 10+10 = 20. Therefore 26-20 = 6. There’s your third 6! And there you have it folks, 666. This is a clear indication that this website is being exposed as the work of the Satan!”
As compelling and obvious as Marrs’ arguments might be, Blogger.com’s website stated that the problems were associated with the implementation of their new beta software. Most of the “bugs” had been resolved by Thursday afternoon. In all, The Tominthebox News Network was down for approximately 45 minutes, making the time of "judgment" quite short.
