RE: "former" student
I think the description is being used as Mr Frost doesn't seem to have entered gainful employment since being an undergrad at Arkon. So, seeing as we all like to label people by their professions, the reporters that wrote the original copy were kind of stuck at "well, he used to be a student, but now he just sits in his Mom's basement and hacks people's credit card details.... what do we put that down as?" Seeing as all the reports on the Web seem to be just rehashes of the FBI report, which, along with the court papers, labelled Mr Frost as a "former student", our intrepid and unstintingly original Reg hacks just regurgitated the same label as the other tierlessly innovative hacks.
In the meantime, where are the usual hordes of frothing libtards screaming that his political holiness makes his crimes justifiable, and that it's all a big consipracy by The Man to shut down student political groups and the like (well, some noddy sh*t like that)?
