from WIRED magazine - October/2002 (I am behind on my reading, so sue me)

89% - Proportion of the US house of representatives who voted for the Cyber Security Enhancement Act, which would allow life imprisonment for malicious computer hackers.  Only 3 house members voted against it.  The legislation is now pending before the senate.

I notice that it says for malicious hackers ... Does that mean that they'll leave recreational hackers alone? Or are they gonna' default to "They're all alike"?

Personally I think that they'll default just like they did so far...

I'm sure recreational hackers are "watched."

Life imprisonment for learning...

Slap on the wrist (might as well be) for kiddy raping...
