"Can you help me 'hack into' X" posts will now cease

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Effective immediately we will be removing, without notice, any threads or posts along the lines of "can you help me 'hack into' this that or the other thing". There's been an increase in questions from new users asking for help "hacking into" other peoples' services or devices, usually for malicious reasons. It's now worn out and continues to be basically the same recycled question. This seems to mainly be a phenomenon amongst n00bs who are confused by the concept of hacking, going only on stereotypes they've been spoon-fed by the right-wing owned commercial mass media. These threads hijack the forum and no longer have a place here. You should go back and reread the terms of use file you read and agreed to when you signed up. In fact, I'll make it convenient for you:

3. DEFINITION OF "HACKING"


Hacking is about production, not destruction; it involves curiosity, research, analysis, knowledge, the creation of new ideas, the discovery of amazing breakthroughs, and the sharing of information with those who will use it responsibly. Hacking is not illegal activity. The Digital Dawg Pound and the Binary Revolution Forums will not take any responsibility for your actions, nor do we condone any sort of illegal activity, especially in the name of hacking.



Hijacking peoples' social media sites, vandalizing web pages, invading private computer systems (including other peoples' cell phones) and similar illegal activities are criminal acts and have no relationship at all to hacking. This contributes nothing positive to the forum or society and only wastes everybody's time. This behavior will not be tolerated. If you are found to violate this announcement your post will be removed and you WILL be given infraction points for spamming. We are not against discussion of this issue if it pertains to products or services you personally own, for research purposes and you state explicitly so in your post, and even then you shouldn't expect much help unless you are already a well-established and trustworthy member of the site. If you are posting with the intent of causing harm to other people then you should find another site that better suits your needs.

Besides, if you are determined enough and you still think you're some sort of "hacker" because of it, then you obviously know the value of doing your own independent research. Get going.
