Why you need to provide a contact form

Found a hacked site - but there's no way to report it!

Yesterday I noticed that the Wordpress site of a well known Musician had been hacked (the header is stuffed with #*$! links). I only noticed this because I was checking to see if it was a Wordpress site and had a look at the source (the links aren't visible on the page).

Anyway, when I looked for a contact form, there wasn't one and there is no means whatsoever to contact the webmaster. Eventually I sent an email to the address listed in the domain registration - but today the site is still in the same state as before.

It's not the first time I've wanted to contact a webmaster to offer help (normally it's a bug rather than a hack), only to find that there is no means of contact.

Before you said WordPress, my thought was the contact form was probably how it got hacked. :-)
