    In this context, I don't think it is important at all, if BtB
    had used the phrase "compromised" instead, this discussion would never
    have arisen at all.

    In fact, to be honest, it really is about time that we all got over
    the distinction, and try to understand implicitly, that one of the
    *many many* connotations of the word "hack" is indeed "compromise
    of box by sKidie", even if i'ts just from their POV.

    *Human* vocab and grammar are flexible, descriptive, and evolving,
    usage creates definition.
