Politics aside, I have a question for you: What was the last episode prior to S6 in which Willow hacked into another system?

I'm going off memory here, but the last one I can recall was Enemies.* If I'm right, that's a long gap.

I'm not sure I see Willow's hacking as substantively different than Buffy's breaking and entering. Both were in a good cause. Buffy, of course, never abused that power except in Bad Girls. If you see Willow's magic as a form of hacking, then I'd still see her abuses in S6 as abuses of power rather than the glee of "hacking" per se.

*In TYF, she tried to decrypt the disks Spike gave her, and in NMR, she told Anya and Giles how to shut down the power grid, but it was Adam who actually did that.
