Fear, uncertainty, doubt and leeches

Several bloggers reference an amusing article in the Sydney Morning Herald: “Facebook Labelled A $5b Waste Of Time“. Who labelled it so? Why “Richard Cullen of SurfControl, an internet filtering company.”

It reminds me of an exchange from Blackadder II, when Edmund goes to see a doctor and is sceptical of the prescribed leech remedy:

Doctor Leech: You know the leech comes to us on the highest authority?
Edmund: Yes. I know that. Dr. Hoffmann of Stuttgart, isn’t it?
Doctor Leech: That’s right, the great Hoffmann.
Edmund: Owner of the largest leech farm of Europe.
