I have no problem with activists hacking into somebody's political site
and replacing the home page with something else. This kind of prank is a
traditional one, like marking a mustache on a campaign poster or
detourning an advertisement.

I'm a firm advocate of free speech for EVERYBODY, but if we can't tweak
somebody on their high horse once in a while, then we throw our sense of
humor out the window.

As long as the rest of the files on the site are left unchanged, this is
fine with me.
