Which I totally agree with. They are AWESOME at what they do and therefore if caught should always get the opportunity to use there skills.
Apart from that --- knowledge is through experience of the banned/illegal/daring/risky/blunt and true things --- that is what a hacker is proving.
Apple, Microsoft, Google and everyone who knows how to make new products brilliant they know --- THE WORLD BEAUTIFIES ITSELF BY GOOD + BAD HACKERS ---
Therefore utilize the brilliance for a cause!
Good luck to everyone who wants to seek knowledge.
Power to the seekers of knowledge.
