The mischievous fellows at attrition.org have long loved to goof on 
people who send them e-mail asking for illegal hacking services instead 
of, say, the data-breach statistics that have become a specialty of the 
security site. A congressional aide who wanted help boosting his college 
GPA was an all-time classic, but they get these kinds of requests all 
the time and collect them on a page called Going Postal.

Here's a recent example [1]involving attrition.org's "lyger" in a 
back-and-forth e-mail exchange with someone from Dubai who has 
apparently not seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
