    And it would be called a hate crime.

    Re: Student convicted of hacking Sarah Palin e-mail account

    This story, the OP, should be a lesson to everybody. This kid, who didn't know Palin personally, didn't really "hack" into her email account. He got in by answering Yahoo's security questions with some commonly known info about her and from a little Googling of her.

    With all the identity theft going on these days, take a lesson from this. When you set up an account don't answer those security questions with your real information. i.e. Use a high school who you liked their colors, mother's maiden name: use a neighbor who lived next to you when you grew up, first pet name: use a cartoon character, etc. Get the drift?

    If somebody wants to hack into any account of yours, and you answered those questions truthfully - you have helped the hacker.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Kid should get into trouble because what he did was illegal, but at the same time big a hard answer to your secret question people Jesus. Kid was still a dumbass for even trying it.

    Thats my question to you.

    Why are you trying to water down what he did? Is it solely based on politics or is there a personal motivation as well?
