I finally realized a reason to express my disdain of calling someone getting ahold of your username/password and defacing/deleting the account hacking.

It’s the same as if someone robbed you, the first thing police look for is a sign of forced entry. If they can just type in the account information, it’s not hacking, unless they found that info from actually hacking elsewhere.
