Just for the record, that's Hanlon's Razor (arguably a specific
application of Occam's Razor to human relations, though some see it as a
corollary of Finagle's Law).  Compare
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanlon's_Razor and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occam's_razor.

See also http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?AssumeStupidityNotMalice,
which points out that the ignorant or stupid one is not necessarily the
other guy.

And, of course, we've all seen plenty of evidence for the validity of
Crabtree's Bludgeon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crabtree's_Bludgeon).

Or perhaps we just have to apply Ockham's Razor: don't attribute to 
malice what can easily be attributed to stupidity or ignorance...
