There are multiple definitions:
1) The process of hacking a hack - the good
2) The process of hacking off a hacker or hack (loser) - the bad
3) The process of hacking a hacker - the ugly
Depending on how you use this term you're either doing something:
1) Good - hacks are usually good, but if you're hacking a hack, it means you're trying to improve it
2) Bad - killing people is never a good thing, no matter if they're a good hacker, bad backer, or hack of a human being
3) Ugly - improving people is always a good endeavour, but it can get ugly because the hacker may already be the good kind of hacker. But even still, improving another human being is always a very subjectively ugly thing to do.
