Virus hysteria debunk-site in difficulties

Curtains for Vmyths.com?

By Thomas C Greene, 11 Jul 2003

The popular Vmyths Web site which has for several years ridiculed the excesses of virus and cyber-terror hysteria may be going down for the count.

A chronic lack of advertising income has left editor Rob Rosenberger pretty much the sole, volunteer contributor, but now he's been called up for military duty overseas. The site does not generate enough income to hire a substitute editor for the period between now and when Rosenberger is expected to return.

The site is appealing to fans for support, but the fundraiser has been slow going. Without an angel, the site will not be updated during Rosenberger's absence, and may be scrapped entirely. Which would definitely be a pity. ®
