Why would someone even think of doing such a thing? Awful!

Cause they know they're away at siggraph and therefore won't be able to respond as they normally would...

This is why we don't have bases on the Moon or colonies on Mars or thousands of people making great careers for themselves working on space stations or mining asteroids; triffle and small mindedness and apparently to much time on peoples' hands...

Hi Guys,

Hacked is one thing, but did anyone notice if their are any payloads of the trojan kind if one goes to the hacked Silo forum. My bets are that their very likely is, so virus / trojan check your PC's

Are you going to be OK or should we put you on suicide watch?
