    Hello, I have found one interesting website and I can EDIT all pages' content. I don't know, maybe it is bug or something, but I can insert links, delete and so on... No hacking at all. When you enter website, you can see Edit button and edit everything... Some of pages has pr3+. Links are do follow. So my question is it illegal to do this (edit someones website info and insert your own links)?

    Lol, if its a publically editable and there is no disclaimer saying "YOU CANNOT LEGALLY EDIT THIS PAGE!" then no, it's not illegal, go for it man. I always come across these types of pages and drop a link or two.

    Can you pm me the link of the site or the name of the site exactly. i think the owner wish to make it free to editable for every one. So , there is nothing illegal.

    If it is publicly editable with consent, then yes. But if it is a mistake by the webmaster, it is unethical

    If where you I would have kept my mouth shut about that site. It is probably one of the best and easiest backlinks you could have found.
