    You all probably read some offended old timer :cool: point out the difference between hackers (white/black hat, crackers, the lot, all security risks) and hackers (computer geeks, guru's and other low level programmers, the creators).

    I don't mind reading these discussions, when someone feels it's important to point out the difference and claim the monopoly on the hacker title , who am I to judge the arguments. So I don't and point to this document :)
