    Apples and Oranges my dear Coward. This guy committed a crime whilst on US soil, fraudulently obtaining VOIP minutes. The fact that he also went through 'wet paper bag' security is the only similarity.

    That's your excuse? That SOLO-boy wasn't actually sitting on a chair in the US when he waltzed through (and I agree completely here) 'wet paper bag security' - and boasted "I will continue to disrupt at the highest levels.”

    No excuses needed. In this case they *stole* minutes, whereas McKinnon (I presume that's who you mean by 'SOLO-boy' {note the personal epithet, a sure sign of a small mind}) didn't actually steal anything; merely showed up the US military sysadmins as being utter clueless numpties. That's the real reason they want to bring him to trial, the ridiculously inflated megabux for damages is merely the contractors salaries for doing same numpties jobs for them and securing the systems! (Icon for the forthcoming seppie raid if we refuse to extradite)
