    Imagine waking up one morning, and every account you have is blanked - every dollar gone - and there's nothing anyone can do about it. Imagine if that happened to 20 million Americans instantly and simultaneously.

    WRONG, SIR, WRONG.

    THIS President isn't responsible for anything that happens.

    It's all George Bush's fault.

    Bush is responsible.

    Conservatives blame Obama for the sun going down at night, why is this incident a surprise to anyone?

    Read all the news threads in this forum. If it happened since inauguration day, somebody is personally blaming the president for it. As if, somehow, the president's job is to micromanage every aspect of security in any part of the country, even in private industry.

    I mean seriously.

    true, I am in favor of extremely harsh sentences for hackers-especially ones designed as vandalism

    Steve Warshak (smiling bob-mail enhancement company Berkely Nutricuticals) got 25 years even though most of those he scammed lost no more than 100 bucks. But there were thousands so under the federal sentencing guidelines, the millions in total losses meant a very high offense level

    some hacker causes 1 million people 50 bucks each in damages that's 50 million in losses which means many years in the slammer.

    I was at a cyber-crimes seminar and the fed agent they had there mentioned some teenage slacker hacker who really messed up a few companies. Right after he was charged he disappeared--he was found "sleeping with the fishes"

    no one proved who had the geek cleaned but they had a pretty good Idea.

    hard to lose any sleep over that sort of retribution.

    It was dumb when people were blaming everything on Bush and it's dumb when people do the same to Obama.
