If you haven't noticed, I recently added the number of users that are currently online to the sidebar. Right now, it's showing "72 Users Online". I have a question for you, one of the masses . . . Should I change it to "Hackers Online" instead to signify the number of camera hackers that are roaming about on this site? If I do, it would look like "72 Hackers Online". What do you think?

Recently, a number of illegitimate users have found this site by searching for "hacker" on Google. When they searched for "hacker", they had malice intentions in mind. One such example is the post below:
"hello pls i need an good hacker to provide me bank logins for different banks in Uk,USA,CANADA, you can get back to me for a deal my email is [omitted]."
Two such cases have occurred this week. I just want to make it clear to these people, who are searching for "hackers", that this web site does not condone their practice. The users on this web site are using the original, real meaning of the word "hack", which is benevolent. By applying this concept to camera, we are making our camera equipment do more for us.
For a good understanding of hackers vs. crackers, please refer to The Jargon File. If you prefer reading printed pages, a major portion of The Jargon File, such as The Jargon Lexicon has been published in The New Hacker's Dictionary book. Feel free to pick up a copy at the local bookstore.
