@pleonasm - I think that hackers who work for the "good guys" are very interesting as well. I've heard that several times someone has hacked into some systems because they felt like it, been caught and then been offered a job.
It seems like the kind of thing that would only happen in a story.
What really annoys me is that they are even necessary. Why do people have to be such jerks? I mean, I can see (although still hate) viruses that put spam on your computer, or steal money, or whatever, but some of them are just petty nonsense, and that drives me crazy.
