So , there i was… browsing… reading some slashdot and found one other brilliant post regarding spammers suing spam software companies :
This looks like it’s becoming another “unholy alliance” like the virus / anti-virus market. It’s as if the net had no native problems, so people have had to think up some so they could sell solutions for them. I wouldn’t care if there wasn’t so much collateral damamge to the net’s reputation and so much extra effort on my part for “trash removal” in my corner of the net.
And i come to think…
Unholy alliances on the net… Sounds pretty interesting.
Antivirus software is necessary because there are viruses written by everyone. Patches are necessary because there are exploits found by everyone. Spam blockers are necessary because there are these morons that spam us.
Is there some wacko economy going on which keeps itself intact and ripping us happy netizens of our pretty money , time and intellect ?
Or did i just wake up and smelled some coffee finally ?
This gives of course a new defenition into exploiting technology.
If the people who spam , write viruses and find exploits do … ; What stops me to do something similar ?
Exploit the evil technology and don’t ever be ashamed about it !?
Rip every goddamn piece of sound on the planet to mp3/ogg , whatever. Burn everything on overclocked region free dvd writers and play them on a completely hacked Xbox !
