some people get the false impersion on hackers mainly from other sites that deliver false contents.
for example. recently i read an article written by someone on how to determine if your son is a hacker.
honestly, i don't think this guy even bothered to open google and type the word hacker! for example, he mentioned that "lunix" is an elegal operating system and that telnet is a software used to hack other servers in a flash!
i was very shocked when i read this article. i'll be posting the link soon.
