Clean up possible misquote to avoid nuclear fallout

Cleanup on aisle 50764.

While I appreciate what a fun fireball the thread might turn into, the subject of the FPP is miffed by syntax in the FPP which might be construed as attributing a quote to her (when in fact it is a quote by someone else whom she is disagreeing with), and the FPPer has also said he/she has no problem changing the syntax, so in the name of avoiding nuclear fallout, could Jessamyn or Matt edit the FPP?

spreading FUD

The doom & gloom cyberterrorism FPP is a rote misquoting of an innacurate slashdot headline. While the subject is discussion-worthy, it's presented as overanxious FUD, relating a "Who knows what tomorrow will bring?" essay as an de facto overnight forecast.
