When?  What I read was 'hello, I'm back'...  There was a reference to 
'just because I got...' but I think that was sarcastic.  He's probably 
learned his lesson.

Would you condemn me for using p2p filesharing and smoking pot?  It's 
criminal, after all...  and it probably costs about the same as 
phreaking (that is, pretty much bugger all, except maybe a relatively 
insignificant (compared to their profits) cost to the corporates)

I'll say it again, exactly when did he ask us to pat him on the back? 
He lamented being off the internet, but then so would I.  He didn't say 
'look at me, I'm so clever' at all.

This holier-than-thou stuff coming from the list is getting on my 
nerves.  I can /remember/ being that age(dim and distant memories...) 
and I guess I must be a natural rebel - I'd have /killed/ to be on the 
phreaking scene, and yes, I'd probably have been a 14m3 script kiddie. 
I wasn't and never have been a phreaker or a script kiddie, *but*....

...and no, I'm not condoning anything either.  From what I read you can 
make a real nuisance of yourself with a beige box, but then we don't 
actually know what he did do we?

Well thanks a lot for sobering me up.  You /do/ realise this means I'm 
going to have to do /work/.  You bastards!  ;)
