    And frankly, even though this is incredibly idealistic to expect much result, the technology community needs to stop excusing and glorifying hackers.

I see a war on hackers similarly to the war on drugs - it would just make it that much more enticing.
    Talk about a losing battle. I really don't want to be in the middle of that one.

    Except those "hackers" built the tech community. They're the reason you have all that electronic gear to play with. And some of them are why you can now use that tech in something approaching a secure manner.

    These aren't script kiddies we're talking about here.

    Yeah, I meant a PC or emails.

    To an incredibly limited extent. Hackers self-perpetuate the need for security.

    I'll be damned. It's illegal in New York too. Never knew that. I have to wonder though whether that's more about stupid kids joy riding or concerns that it'll take off on it's own than about theft.

    Does anyone NOT know by now that EVERYTHING you put on your phone or computer (if said device is connected in any way to the network) is visible and in fact fair game?
    Just because this is the topic-du-jour doesn't mean we're ignoring other more serious examples.

    Btw, on that last, no. The photographer keeps the rights to their photo, even if they share it with other individuals. They still retain the rights where it comes to public display of the photograph.
    Somebody with a name and reputation like "Weiner" is a perfect metaphor for this topic.

    Celebrities are just like non-celebrities when it comes to stuff like this. The only difference is that nobody cares about non-celebrities enough to want to look at the photos. There's plenty of non-celebrity nude photos available if you want them.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Arieanna Grande and Mikahala Maroney (I butchered that spelling of both) haven't done nude things. Olivia Munn has done topless, but I believe this leak supposedly included a nude bottom of her as well.

    Many of those in the leak have never been nude on film in any public fashion.


    Add her shoot for Esquire and there's not a lot left for the imagination.

    BTW: She's gorgeous.

In my experience whatever recompense you get from someone who has wronged you rarely makes up for the affront anyway.

Because you are partially responsible and a total dumb****.

But as has already been said - if a hacker wants to get information they will. It's up to us, the users, to inform ourselves, to regulate our expectations, and to not to trust any information we would not want shown to everyone we know, on anything which has an internet connection.
    You are continuing to put focus on the victim's responsibility, not the perpetrator's.

    Until you can come to terms with this, you and I are just going to go round in circles.
