WoW and its players as seen through the eyes of a Bank Alt. . .
I love it when glitches like this happen
and yes there was a lot of that kind of logic (they are doing it and they are not stupid so therefor we beter start doing it ourselves!) The UFO thing in Russia was a classic case in point, from what I have found, the Russians more or less figured out that the US Airforce had basicaly stumbled onto the perfect cover for its secret work.
take any given incident, "officialy" investgate it, leak "information" about the incident, and then let the "fringe thinkers" run from there, and soon most people will just go oh THEM again and go on. they overlooked the reality that people would latch onto individial cases literaly forever trying to dig into "the real story" that the goverment had covered up.
