Comment Hacker? REALLY? (Score 1) 767

I've been disappointed, but not surprised, to see the MSM refer to this break-in, which apparently consisted of knowing Palin's zip code and date of birth, as "hacking", but I expected better of Slashdot. I mean, never mind all the hand-wringing about the differences between "hacker" and "cracker" over the past 25 years, people at LEAST used to have a higher standard for what "hacker" meant than "someone who can use a phone book".

A bug in the hand is better than one as yet undetected.
