Fuck all hackers! They are engaged in totally malicious behavior that is
utterly devoid of value to anybody. If you think it is fun to glamorize
these scumsucking bums, just wait until you lose a few bucks to them because
of a disabled server or something, and then you will change your mind. As
for them having any kind of political consciousness, what a joke! They
destroy people's lives, good and bad alike, simply because it gets them off.
Fuck all hackers! They are worse than masturbating fleas!
I write this not as part of any elite or politically reactionary force in
society, but because I was the innocent victim of one of these shits. Fuck
all hackers, fuck them all!
