Hacked or Vandalized?

It all started with a tale of copyright infringement when a print magazine reprinted an edited version of a blogger’s article. The publisher responded with a backhanded apology, and the internet responded by commenting on the magazine’s Facebook page.

Out of the dust rose a new Facebook page for the magazine with a claim that the original had been hacked. Was is it hacked or simply vandalized? It doesn’t appear to be hacked, but rather vandalized with thousands of negative comments. The first page surged to 5600 friends and the other has over 1100. At the moment, neither Facebook page appears to be faring very well against the onslaught of sarcasm and snide comments.
