Well, I suppose it is only to be expected in Hard Rain** Times of ponzi collapses and systems routs, 1984 type Newspeak from those captains invested in leaky old and getting weaker boats failing spectacularly to stay afloat with passengers.
It is a sad and bad situation to be registered for publishing it though, rather than biting the hand that feeds IT, given the increasingly unbelievable tales it peddles to the masses now quickly and silently stealthily extraordinarily morphing into a not so ignorant and arrogant undereducated few, as was necessarily the case required for the limited exclusive elitist executive success, a fleeting triumph, in the recent ancient past of the modus operandi, especially whenever in these Postmodern Times of Spaces and Places with 0Days to Deploy and Exploit, to be an Ace Reporter Team Pioneering and Surfing the Vanguard of Novel Interconnecting and Noble Internetworking Waves has one rewarded excessively beyond compare and leading a Dedicated and Enthusiastic Following with Engaging and Enlightening Disciples in Myriad Extremely Sensitive and MkUltra Top Secret Matters.

Re: Those “engagement numbers” may be misleading
An alternative likely view in a paraphrase to all of that Those “engagement numbers” may be misleading post, AC, and it was very informative, so thanks for that, is there are always shit talking idiots out there running with black boxes left to run unsupervised in a country where the developers weren’t paying attention to anything other than the revenue and didn’t speak the language.
However, whether they have any sort of viable effective absolute command and remote virtual control over them is an altogether quite different matter which only a very few will be equipped to address and demonstrate with any practical alacrity.

Ripe Rotten Recipe for Future Wholesale and Retail Disasters
UKCloud are a business who supply services to HMG. They are not part of HMG. They’ve gone bust because HMG – rightly – won’t procure large-scale computing services and infrastructure from a debt-financed, local firm with no scale, resilience or track record. …. Anonymous Coward
Procuring such services [large scale or otherwise] from foreign firms is proven a lot dodgier and much more dangerous than ensuring they are provided locally ….. for it is an ACTive vector and titanic vulnerability with catastrophic exploit potential over which the home team have no influence or power/command and control.
And the clearest evidence currently for that is presented daily in the stranglehold which foreign energy exports do so easily export and exert upon markets and livelihoods/coincidentally interconnected internetworking realities.
