NEWS.com.au | Man admits cyber election prank (January 15, 2004). Thought one: at least news.com.au doesn't think the guy is a hacker. Thought two, after reading it: for FUCK's sake. People have no clue what's going on here. For a start; if a polly registers a web domain they should at least by using .au addresses. The idea that the guy has anything to answer for to the Feds is total bullshit - it's his site, he can do whatever the hell he wants (today he's got some kind of NASA content up there?!). Whether you think it's lame or not; it's free speech. Getting worked up over it just shows that the politicians are clueless about technology.
