I think everyone here is missing the point: Those poor Steubenville boys' accounts were violated without their consent! Those accounts lay unprotected, and some nefarious hacker forced his way in, had his way with their logins and passwords, and published some embarrassing photos, videos, and tweets. Those became available for all the hacker's friends, nay, the world, to see. Then those poor exemplars of humanity started receiving threats and were shunned by their community. Terrible! They will now have to live the rest of their lives knowing that their passwords aren't safe, always looking over their shoulders wondering when their next account violation will happen. It's a real shame. At least those Steubenville boys can take comfort in the knowledge that the person who assaulted and nearly ruined their lives will be in jail long after they're released from juvie for RAPING A REAL LIFE FLESH AND BLOOD GIRL!
Jesus H. Christ on a biscuit!
