Sometimes when this kind of thing happens I find myself hating the hacks. But other times, and this is one of them, I find myself feeling a bit of admiration.

It's like that plague in WOW. That was genuinely awesome.

2 I don't know why people call this "XSS" when there is no other site involved. There's only a failure to escape the content.

3 Good point Pete.  Corrected.
