    Pretty general, isn't it? Sigh....more salesmanship. A little content, a snappy title...Actually, although there are hacker-users, I think the old-breed of hackers still exist. It's like an old aboriginal custom called, Counting-Coup! A young brave might try stealing something from an enemy by walking in, in broad daylight, and just taking it. Counting-coup takes great courage, daring and creativity. It's very important not to get caught. The hacker-users simply use illegitimate programs for illegal purposes. They are not doing Counting-coup. What they are doing is merely criminal--there's no honor in it (at least from the Counting-coup point of view).
