Web-site hacking has reached a new low, both morally and technically.

Unknown miscreants had a good time two weekends ago when they posted hundreds of flashing animated images onto discussion boards hosted by the Landover, Md.-based Epilepsy Foundation.

That's both incredibly tragic and because I'm a bad person... quite funny.

It's morbidly amusing, but I do hope no one got seriously hurt.

I have to say that is a pretty crappy stunt to pull!
Obviously there are a few people out there with too much time on their hands.

What a sad thing for someone to do.

Imagine someone recovering from a severe accident, trying to learn how to deal with head injuries going to that site for support and help.

Or a teenager, recently diagnosed with a brain tumor seeking help and information.

So sad.
