Apparently saying that you like hacking on things without specifying "things" means you're automatically assumed to be compromising systems and that you're going to destroy evidence so they might as well take all of your equipment preemptively. So I guess hacking together a high water sensor for the basement, since I'm calling it "hacking," means I'll destroy evidence in legal investigations and that I like to break into systems I don't own all the time. Bullshit.

It's basically what C.N.N. tells sheeple a "hacker" is. The average person doesn't know anything about technology, so they look at what Kim Komando (or other "technology experts") write on CNN and USA Today.


Total rubbish! I mean, she says, "a hacker broke into Home Depot and stole peoples' credit card numbers. Bad hackers!". So... that's what people think; architects, mail carriers, police officers, and judges. Doesn't matter what they do for a living, if Kim Komando says its true, its gotta be true.


However, if someone kept breaking into a bank's vault and stealing money that way.... They'd say, "crap my banks sucks. It needs a new vault and better security. Of course a burglar will sneak in and rob a bank if they leave the doors and vault unlocked or insecure".
