Yikes, I just posted the same thing. Yes, the hack thing is a problem for
Maxis even if they hadn't planned on it happening.

Candace is one thing I didn't pick up. I had three copies of the abduction

This even got into the "New Scientist" online and probably into their next
print edition.

Reminds me of the old adage "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing"
