I see no difference between that web site and one telling people how to pick locks. Many people use lock-picking skills, whether physical or digital, for pro-social reasons, but many do not. My personal preference is for such sites to be legal, but freedom of speech for lock-pickers is not a fundamental freedom.
Freedom of speech is Fundamental to America. It has to be the great exception to take it away.
The usual exception given is "falsely shouting fire" in a crowded theater where the resulting turmoil might bring immediate danger to people.
Freedom of speech doesn't mean that you can coax or trick people into criminal activity (like a contract murder), or use the freedom of speech to commit that kind of activity (fraud) yourself.
