The way you're using this word is highly annoying. You can correct this by s/hacker/cybercriminal/, thanks in advance.

Your mail is highly annoying and shows you know next to dick, and are an idealist gimp. Instead of writing out a custom reply, lemme quote what I wrote some other dork that had the same crap to spew: We actually refer to it as 'defacing' more than anything else, and were one of the first sites to do so. That gives it a further distinction between 'hacking' and 'cracking'. The terms hacking and cracking are so convoluted and mixed up, it is impossible to clearly use one or the other in any setting and have it universally accepted. If you are going to take up this battle, why not try to get everyone to accept the word 'nigger' one way or the other, since it too has different meanings depending on who you ask. I too was once deluded like you. I thought that if I protested enough, people would listen. But then I realized that mainstream media had been using the term 'hack[er|ing]' in various contexts for a long time, as far back as 1982 or before. The notion that you or anyone else can change the masses and get them to use 'crack' over 'hack' is absurd.

You wasted mailing me back. 1) I never expected you to make the change anyway, 2) I stopped reading your reply after the above flame. Have a nice day,

Everyone please feel free to mail this gimp and tell him how to change insipid things about his life or web page.
