    What fools

    If they are dumb enough to hack and/or to announce their intent to hack, then five years in the slammer is well deserved. They are too stupid to be on the street.

    Fools pissing of the Chinease Govt

    After all, IP is designed in such a way that no matter how much of a l33t hacker you are, there is always a trail that leads to a MAC address that has your mums house number linked to it on some database somewhere.

    On top of that, anyone pissing of the Chinease government is going to be dead in about 20 seconds anyway

    pass me a new script monkey, this ones broken
