Ku Klux Klan Korrected

To the satisfaction of many, it was a klansman's worst nightmare. 

K.A. Badynski woke up one day last week and found his Ku Klux Klan Web site

Visitors seeking white pride information were instead automatically sent to
an organization devoted to fighting online bigotry. 

"The domain was stolen," said Don Black, the director of the Stormfront, a
white power site. 

Stormfront hosts images for KKK.com. 

"I gather someone may have hacked an email address of one of the contacts
listed in the [Network Solutions] domain name database," Black said. 

But the director of anti-hate group HateWatch said his organization had
nothing to do with the redirect.
