He's being quite smart and very mature about the whole thing. If he
does anything to piss these hackers off, they'll take down his site.
If he plays up to them and announces to the world what is going on
(sort of a security journalism) then this has a much more beneficial
effect on the whole.
I hope his plight gets a load of press. We need this sort of stuff to
raise the awareness of security because as Steve Gibson discovers,
ISPs and organisations really don't give a damn at the moment.
