Oh look at me mummy I am a cowboy
Black hats, white, grey even, oh gosh won't they just grow up.
You know what I find funny is the script kiddie one. See, if you think about it, most Admins are like script kiddies, they don't produce software they just run software others have constructed - just like a script kiddie :)
People are compromising nowadays for power and money, and they often have physical backing. Not sure the days of name calling are really appropriate anymore.
Still a collective noun is required and well frankly no one wants crackers, and hackers is just lamo on an epic fail of all fails.
So, how about compromisers, reverse engineers. I am not sure there even needs to be a moral spin on the matter, it is just an activity, in some countries it will be illegal unless you own the devices, in other places not. And the legality will also depend on the authority a person has been given. The morality is subjective as always.
Or how about if you are going to use the term, you have to wear that colour of Sowestern for an entire day.
