It's funny how in the early days of hacking into other's computers there was a debate about what if anything was actually being stolen and whether any real damage was done. Now it's very clear that bitcoin miners are very clearly running up electrical bills. It seems that now that we all have computers and have so much of our lives invested in them that the old debate is, um, no longer much of a debate.
