This has been my experience also.

I recently moved from a rental house that had pretty bad internal wiring. A particular UPS was unusable as it would just light up like an xmas tree and squeal about the dirty power.

I couldn't run too many CFL's as they would burn out in under a month in -most- sockets, others lasted the whole time I was there.

I bought the house I moved into and clean power was pretty important to me. This house had a good deal of it's electrical recently rewired with a brand new 100 amp panel outside and a bunch of new wiring in. The house came decked out in CFLs and I haven't had one burn out yet. I even installed some dimmable ones and run them dimmed most of the time and they have been fine for about a year so far. There are about three that live outside and the temperature flux from the seasons or even during the day haven't affected them yet.

Just my two cents...

I am not sure what you are trying to say here.

I was trying to point out that 'protected computer' is a legal term and that there are set qualifications for this. I was also trying to point out that a web server qualifies at it is used for interstate or foreign commerce or communication, which is specifically spelled out in the law. This is true of almost any web server if you can show that one person from out of state hit your server as that would be labeled as 'interstate communications'.

Whether Scientology is an actual religion (legally it is in the US and some other countries, but we all know better) or not doesn't have any bearing on the situation.
