First of all this is not an issue of personal YOU and personal ME, but about hacking as a whole. And then again I am not giving you any advice, I am asking you questions and putting forward my view. Well about some of the issuese you raised.
I am not a rich person ( and I don't address rich person as "bloddy rich" as you do, because I also dream to be rich, [guess u also do] ). Rich people dont have time to read posts in forum like this, and answer to topic like this. So if i suddenly disappear from this forum, you can guess that I became rich.
I am using genuine XP software that came with my PC. But yes I do use cracked software not because I am angry with those rich software giants, or for fun. Its because I can not afford to buy them. Regarding this I am bit confused. What is Hacking and what is Cracking? About the Chinese (not God) people doing to this software industry, its Cracking as my knowledge allow to distinguish this. Cracking software and hacking system is two different thing, (though both are illegal and ethically wrong). I agree with you that because of Chinese (not God )cracked softwares people came to know about lots of IT realted things, based on which they even developed new things. But giving this reason, making cracking-others-hard-worked software a business is very low grade mentality. Chinese and russians are doing that, Pakistani are doing this in the field of movie.
Ok you once praised for the nice work of WNSO website. But what would you have done if memebership would need you to pay? WNSO site was hacked by some hackers of Iran, displaying index page with their SLOGAN. In the same way UNICEF, website of Nelson Mandela ( image changed with porn pictures ) was hacked in past days. What do you have to say about it? For fun?
I might be hypothetical here, staying against cracking but using cracked software. But what I want to say is using cracked software with the consious about doing bad, and using cracked software as "it is granted" is different things.
One other thing, its not abundance of cracked softwares in Nepal that made us to have IT knowledge, its because of our crave.
And finally---- make a very good website, I mean very good one, like this WNSO, or say Hi-5, or You tube etc, and after few days of the popularity, find yourself hacked by some guys. Try to feel that pain, agony, anger, frustration, Then come again and say "I hack for Fun".
