Mr President, is this a war on hackers – or a war on people stopping hackers?

Obama, like all politicians, is computer illiterate.

When he says "hackers", he really means "crackers". I'm a hacker. I only crack systems when payed to do so by the owner of that system (unlike the NSA, for example ...).

The idiots making the laws scare me a hell of a lot more than the skiddies cracking into insecure-by-design systems.
