I can't believe you were so enthusiastic to post the URLs to this list
that you didn't even read them fully. The Kevin Mitnick story is
probably the most well-known hacker[0] case in the world. As such,
whether you like it or not, it is now a piece of the earth's history.

I personally would be proud to own the laptop, if I had that kind of
money to throw around :). Whether Kevin was the worlds gr34t3$+ l4m3r or
a guy who actually had skills, he made a hell of a sacrifice for what he
did. He deserves some respect, not as one of your undergr0und el1t3
br0thers, but as an icon of the 20th century[1].

The post that parented this thread is an epitome of how bad this list
really is, less of the trolling please.

Dave.
