    if via this they could stop the RIAA being the greatest (insert appropriate swear word here)s ever, I would be all for it but this wont so its a little pointless.

    "That said, I hope the perpetrators are suitably ashamed. Speaking as a system administrator myself, I wish a lifetime of Windows ME installs on anyone responsible for waking me up at o-dark-hundred because one of the servers I'm responsible for has gone non-linear. No matter what your opinion of an organization, malicious attacks are never acceptable."

    That's what you get for supporting a jack ass organization with your work.

    I agree with Rebourne. If you are running a controversial site, be it abortion, evolution/creationism, or whatever issue is in the public eye, you had better be prepared for an entity that will disagree violently, and will attempt to destroy the website.

    Right, and if it was Hitlers website for Nazi Germany back in the 1940's that was hacked? You're right. Completely unacceptable... And with his website totally not hacked, Hitler would be all, like, totally like,

    A life time of ME installs?

    Isn't that a shade harsh? I mean, really, installing 98 with your left nut on camera is less humiliating and demoralising than ME.

    Maybe a few years, but not a lifetime, that's damn near murder :(

    The website hasn't been hacked, that's just DRM kicking in... We don't own the content, therefor we can't see it ;)

    m*****f****** godwin's, but good point. you sir deserve a pat on the back and a donkey punch.

    that was a crackup. reminds me of the direction "lunch o'clock".

    anyway, as bad as hacking companies servers and being an a$$hole is, the MPAA had it coming miles off {like media defender) and I'm somewhat surprised it took this long to happen.

    While i partially agree that hacking a system is never good, I can't help but think it was worth it just to annoy them slightly.
    I find it hard to feel sorry for the sysadmin in charge of the server.
    I know he/she is just trying to make a living, but if its not morally defensible, there's bound to be repercussions. :/

    Sums it up for me.

    Of course as I'm in the middle of a web programming project right now, this is just another reminder for me to be very aggressive with my clean() function ;)

    amen.

    ontopic: its far from a bad joke turned worse. i think its a good joke turned better. but thats just me. for god sake, its not like people are dying here... its just a few folks had to woke up in the morning, panic a wee bit, and RIAA got an egg in their face. thats it.

    if the hack causes death or any life-harming consequences, then yeah, thats a good joke turned bad.
    woohoo!!!!!

    am i the only person who didn't have a hard time installing winme?
    anyway, made me laugh. just wish the attack on them had made some kind of a difference. but, cut one head off, seven more replace it.
