Anything but GNUTLS. I tried that piece of shit a few years ago, and encountered a database corruption bug that just killed your SSL at random intervals without warning and no messages in error_log. Only solution was to delete the database before restarting apache ... a restart by itself didn't fix the db.

So, he's using a domain without an SPF record (allowing it to be spoofed), and Cloudflare hosting which is notorius for spam and botnets. The same domain name with .RU extension is already associated with generating spam.

Furthermore, his homepage is chocka-block with links, that anyone could mistake for a link-farm / spam page.

There's no grand conspiracy here, just a webmaster who's not terribly savvy and some overzealous AI heuristics at Spamhaus, FB and Twitter playing it safe.

Nothing more to see here, please move along.

He said sending, not hiding. As in a different ajax request and DOM population based on device.

CSS Media queries in this context just mean you have to download all the data anyway, and then selectively hide bits. Not an ideal solution is it?

Gravity brings me down.
