[The following was pointed out by a visitor to the Negation
 site. Thanks (you know who you are). :) 

 Below shows Vranesevich doing a 180 on his comments about MTV. Whe would
 he do such a thing? Because he worked with MTV on a special about hackers.
 His cry of them being unethical is second to being on TV and plugging
 AntiOnline. Despite not having JP's original article, he is well quoted
 in other places (below) expressing these sentiments. Talk about lack of
 ethics.]

JP writes an editorial titled "MTV Lacks Ethics" on his old web site. On the 
new web site its titled "MTV Pretends to be Hacked". 

This is a blatant attempt to cover up his childish ranting, his misguided motives, 
and finally to pander to MTV. 

The title should still be the same unless he is some sort of spineless idiot. 
Either stick to your guns and ignore MTV or don't bother writing this crap and then 
renaming the editorial later so that MTV won't hate you. People have a 
tendency to notice these things :)

-What kind of person writes a childish editorial titled ^”MTV Lacks Ethics^‘, 
decries the fate of someone^“s criminal actions that they helped publicize in 
that editorial (JF), and then goes on MTV a year later (like nothing 
happened) to talk about other hackers?

  The hack was covered by AntiOnline (www.antionline.com) who claim that the 
  hack was not actually the work of the J.F. of Milw0rm fame, but in fact a 
  publicity stunt by MTV to promote the upcoming MTV feature, "Johnny Fame." 
  In an editorial posted on the AntiOnline Web site, AntiOnline founder John 
  Vranesevich criticized MTV for glorifying hacking stating that MTV would 
  not knowingly promote other illegal activities, but seemed to have no qualms 
  about endorsing illegal hacking techniques for their own personal benefit.

  When hacker news site AntiOnline heard about the MTV "hack," it quickly 
  discovered that the JF in question was not the nuclear proliferation protester 
  from Milw0rm, but the fictional MTV character. 

  John Vranesevich, founder of AntiOnline, was not amused. 

  "I think it screams of bad ethics," said Vranesevich, who has since posted 
  a harsh criticism of MTV's publicity stunt on his Web site. 

  Vranesevich said that the stunt, which he called a phony hack, was a 
  glorification of a criminal act, and was setting a bad example for teenagers 
  by glamorizing the rebellious nature of hackers. 

  "Pretending to hack your own sites is one thing, but actually trying to pin it on a
  high-profile individual is a whole other thing," said Vranesevich. "I think it 
  downplays the seriousness of the things he's done. Here's a guy who broke into 
  a nuclear research site."
