They really do need to get a life. Why must you get pleasure in that? Hacking is dumb, and stupid, and hackers make the internet the worst place possible to be.
Isnt their other hobbies you can get? Sports, Art, Reading? Or are you too fat and lazy to do those.
Recent hackers have made their way into some of the most popular boards on the web...they are losers, who need to look at themselves and think

"Is this really cool"

Here is my answer, NO! Get a freaking life instead of trying to impress your friends on a damn no-talent trait you have.
Nash maybe you can become a hacker?

Children, children behave. Don't call each other names, leave it in the playground and do get alone.

To some degree I would hvae to agree with that statement, although to a large extend it's a biased generalization.

Ontop of David's description of a 'hacker' or what he refered to as 'hackers' or 'crackers', I would classify them as someone who that for either educational, recreational or professional reasons practises evading/circumventing security of an particular information system, whether it be their own or some one else's.

SilentWolf (in my opinion) has typically identified a recreational 'cracker', and has expressed their opinion from the perspective of a victim.

Although I do think that many people neglect to acknoledge the professional 'cracker', someone who is self, or externally employed to steal, and/or to change information of a particular system.

Microsoft and other large internet based organisations would be V. familiar with this 'type' of 'cracker', I believe that someone stealing information and/or changing it could potentially be more devistating then someone maliciously destroying intelectual property (as distressing as it may be), especially in the corporate world.
