I just stumbled into this article and I'm not sure if others here posted before.  Food for thought.

I just wish more hackers got these sort of sentences.  It would serve as a deterrent.

This popped up on one of my astronomy related news feeds back in January. Been on forums where members got into heated arguments with moderators and were banned, but never heard of anyone putting out a "hit" on a forum before.

Folks, this is indeed old news, and was discussed on the forum some time ago.  General Observing is not the place anyway for this discussion.

 

Thanks everyone!
