  1. RE: the chart you referenced.

    Some of us are already sold on the idea that people are indivduals and have these indivduals have their own motivations that might be classed as either “good” or “bad”; however, there is a extreme lack of pushback within the hacker community itself agianst any “bad” hackers.

    People who speak out against such “bad” hackers usally get ostricised from the “hacker” community. So what is the public supposed to think? The burden is on the hacker community to police the bad apples and improve its reputation. Othewise inaction speaks to tacit support of “bad” hackers and the term will forever be associeted with that bad rather then the good.
