    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?)

    known as the 'sm0ked crew' only terrorised websites throughout
