Re: Hacking back against forged attacks

They're an odd mix of throttlingly tight control in some areas (copyright - where money is at risk but lives aren't) and "go get 'em tiger" chaos in others (abhorrently loose gun control - where lives are at risk but money isn't).

This revenge hack thing sits firmly under chaos, the necessity of which is driven by "corporate / IP" psychopathy.

Very plain to see what's important to those who occupy the halls of power in the ol' US of A. Land of the free, so long as you can wrench that freedom from thy neighbour's cold dead hand like the true winner you are!

U! S! A!

U! S! A!

U! S! A!

P.S. If this law passes, the ultimate challenge to a black hat hacker is this:

Create a circle of forever legitimate revenge attacks between Apple, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.
