    There are some very mean spirited people who take advantage of the internet to behave in ways they would never dare to behave in real life.

    I was fascinated with the attitude some of the trolls took, that they were behaving like they were as a lesson to others to not take things on the internet so seriously.

    Also, the attitude of "tough shit, if you morons are morons, it's your own damn fault" was pretty cold.

    yep, it's disgusting what some people can rationalize, isn't it?

    i saw that article last week and found it quite disturbing...

    incidently, i have been researching this subject for some time.


    i found links to some good info on wiki:

    Hacker (computer security) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This article is about computer security hackers. For other types of computer hackers, see Hacker (computing). For other uses, see Hacker.

    In a security context, a hacker is someone involved in computer security/insecurity, specializing in the discovery of exploits in systems (for exploitation or prevention), or in obtaining or preventing unauthorized access to systems through skills, tactics and detailed knowledge. In the most common general form of this usage, "hacker" refers to a black-hat hacker (a malicious or criminal hacker). There are also ethical hackers (more commonly referred to as white hats), and those more ethically ambiguous (grey hats). To disambiguate the term hacker, often cracker is used instead, referring either to computer security hacker culture as a whole to demarcate it from the academic hacker culture (such as by Eric S. Raymond[1]) or specifically to make a distinction within the computer security context between black-hat hackers and the more ethically positive hackers (commonly known as the white-hat hackers). The context of computer security hacking forms a subculture which is often referred to as the network hacker subculture or simply the computer underground. According to its adherents, cultural values center around the idea of creative and extraordinary computer usage. Proponents claim to be motivated by artistic and political ends, but are often unconcerned about the use of criminal means to achieve them.

    Yup. I definitely have more respect for those willing to acknowledge it's wrong but don't give a shit, than those that Jedi mind trick themselves into believing it's somehow right.
