Have you ever had one of those online people that seem to have nothing better to do than harrass you. I’m lucky enough to say I know of (at least) one that seems to be sooooo bored that they feel like sending me messages from numerous s/n’s only to have me continue to ignore the new s/n’s.
Dude, I don’t want to play you online games. Sending people an application that will crash the PC isn’t fun. It isn’t cool It’s down-right despicable. Sad actually. Look at yourself. You’re sitting in front of a machine sending people a file just so they can open it which will lead to problems. Um, tell me if I’m wrong but… wouldn’t it upset you if that was done to YOU!? Right, it "would never happen to" you. Of course not. No waaaaaaay
An excerpt from the LotD:
There is another group of people who loudly call themselves hackers, but aren’t. These are people (mainly adolescent males) who get a kick out of breaking into computers and phreaking the phone system. Real hackers call these people `crackers’ and want nothing to do with them. Real hackers mostly think crackers are lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright, and object that being able to break security doesn’t make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer. Unfortunately, many journalists and writers have been fooled into using the word `hacker’ to describe crackers; this irritates real hackers to no end.
The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them.

Oh, regarding my "loathe" issue from last month. I heard something yesterday and today which kinda perked me up some. I was told two key words to focus on… "this week." I remain skeptical. With that, I go to live live live (that’s something done away from the computer my AIM attacking friend — away from the PC) <- meaning -> out
