Forwarded from: "Thomas (Yahoo!)" <thomasroygarnerat_private> Since when is web-vandalism equal to "terrorized websites" (and since when is terrorized spelled w/ an S instead of a Z?). I believe this reporter is setting an extremely dangerous tone by linking the word terrorism to vandalism. With the 100's of new anti-terrorism laws in place, we are going to see sweeping changes all in the name of "anti-terrorism", example, Super Bowl 36, did anyone catch the commercials that stated "some drug money is used to front terrorist activities" by using imagery (paying for guns, explosives, seeing a person sitting down "building" something). I believe that we need to be very careful how we report items, b/c my creating a link between web vandalism and terrorism, is going to create a new wave of anti-computer "whatever" (i.e., hacking, etc.,) raids, like back during the Cyberpunk days (remember that?)
