    Not much info available about him/them on the website. He's in New York, according to Whois records, and the domain name's been registered since 2004.

    Not a lot there for something that's been registered for 2 years.

    Whoops; my mistake. Registered since 2002.

    I've sometimes wondered if it would be ethical for a CHristian hacker to take down wicked sites... probably not.

    But would it be wrong to pull down some of the wicked sites that are out there? :)

    At best it would be vigilante justice I suppose.

    Now THIS is a good discussion. Computer Ethics.

    When would it be right to burn down an adult book store?

    I completely understand why we might think it's okay to burn down an adult book store, but the fact of the matter is that our elected leaders--and therefore "them that have the rule over us"--have allowed it. Same with adult web sites. I may despise them, but our elected leaders are allowing it to continue.

    I personally thought the .xxx domain was a good idea, but one without "teeth." Without someone willing to say "all adult sites will go behind the .xxx domain, and any adult sites that don't will be fined and taken down," there was no way anyone would willingly change.

    The end doesn't justify the means. Contrary to what Hollywood portrays on the big (and little) screen, violence, murder, and mayhem are not the answer for the same.

    I gotta agree with Don. I despise all the "adult" crap out there, online and off. but the law of the land has allowed it, and that law must be obeyed. using illegal means to take down a porn site, or arson to destroy an adult bookstore, only makes the perpetrator guilty of the crime he commits in doing so, plus destruction of private property.

    I know several hackers. Many are what you would call "white hats". They crawl around inside the code of stuff to find ways to improve it, or change it. They do so legally, and without harm. What I'm reading here sounds more like a techno lynch mob.

    I would have to agree. Christ did not send us to combat sin. He sent us to show sinners how to get forgiveness by pointing them to Jesus.

    But I don't think that's the purpose of the site. You can hack but not crack.
