mccain's myspace defaced
McCain's MySpace template was created by Mike Davidson of Newsvine. As TechCrunch reports, "Davidson gave the template code away to anyone who wanted to use it, but asked that he be given credit when it was used, and told users to host their own image files." McCain's page uses the template without crediting Davidson and uses images hosted on Davidson's server, forcing Davidson to pay for bandwidth from the hits on McCain's page.
Thus, "Davidson decided to play a small prank on the campaign this morning as retribution. Since he’s in control of some of the images on the site, he replaced one that shows contact information" with a statement in support of gay marriage, "particularly marriage between passionate females" (above).
