"Momma didn't raise no fool"

Port scanners are leagal, they are not exclusivly used by so called 'black hat' (meaning malicious -searching for a weakness to exploit) but also by 'grey hat' (meaning sometimes malicious) and 'white hat' (meaning a good person, searching for a weakness to make stronger)...

it's a bit strong to call anyone an idiot for overloking something,

and yes, it is legal...to all people who use the program to scan with that i'm aware of. I have a scanner built into my card, and it gives me the I.P address of anyone who scans my ports.
