    Every scam artist in the world seems to target Robin :facepalm:
    Remember when she almost wired cash to Artie's sister after receiving that e-mail?

    how do people manage to hack twitter and facebook accounts? whats the point of a password if people can just hack their way in?

    It only happens to morons with weak passwords like Robin and Whitney Cummings.

    hack is generic term heaped upon any access that is not officially granted. If you guess someones password people call it hacking.

    kinda like facial tissue and kleenex. ;)

    Sources say Robin has been pranked - what's up with the people listing this as a favorite or retweeting it?

    well, about a month ago someone from japan accessed my facebook and my password was not obvious at all. there's no way anyone could guess it. so there must be ways of retrieving passwords from the website's servers.

    Yeah, she tried to backtrack. Said she wired it but was able to "recall" it after the fact, etc. Basically, it was bullshit.

    i blame the mass media for muddying the meaning. hacking used to be a positive, good and clever thing to do. the media made it dirty.

    cracking, but reporters would have to think in order to make the distinction, so the simpler way is to assume everything is hacking
