Wow, I've never seen an entire subculture so rapidly reduced to a formulaic equation in such a short exspanse of words! It seems as tho much confusion exists within the researcher between hackers, crackers, virus writers, and any true criminal subsets of those classes, as well as the existant ignorance that many people straddle lines between two or even three of those classifications! I once said something to the effect of "I just love labels, it makes pigeonholing people so much easier without taking the effort of actually getting to know them." I feel that applies to this article. And I personally feel it'd be criminal to waste any more words on such rubbish. -aj. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
