this is why we can't have anything nice on the internet
Hackers Assault Epilepsy Patients via Computer (from Wired)

Summary: most of you have heard that people with epilepsy can have problems with rapid flashing lights and animation patterns that can trigger headaches and seizures.  So ... a bunch of [cough] brilliant people decided to invade the blog of the Epilepsy Foundation and post lots of links to images and JavaScript injections and the like which redirected their browsers to exactly those kinds of pain-inducing images.

I wish there was a word to describe the level of disgust I feel for those ... jerks.  Wired is describing this as probably the first time the Internet has been used to physically attack people.

There are no words . . .
