About Those Climate Scientists' Hacked E-mails

A letter to The Guardian:

Since climate sceptics seem in no way bothered by the legality or morality of hacking into someone's personal email, does that mean it is alright to hack into the sceptics' sites? Might there even be legal justification, under freedom of information acts, to check for evidence for collusion or illegal activities of those "opposing global warming"? It would be highly revealing to read what climate "sceptic" sites contained. What's good for the goose is good for the gander...

Worth noting, too, that the scientist at the center of the scandal, Phil Jones, has been getting death threats (presumably from climate change deniers, though this is not entirely clear).
