I would like to add this:
Still, don't be afraid of asking questions!
Continue to ask questions about how to protect yourself, protect your network, protect your computer what kind of threats it exists (and where you can read more about them!
), how the hackers find security holes, how to hide them and cover up the security, what to think about when your making your ownwebsite, why a "true" hacker never would hack your computer just for the fun of it and so on.Do not stop asking questions like these!
Do ask even if it maybe is related to security!
But I think I speak of all of us when I say we are really tired about:
Hi guys! I heard your teh best. And this is my situatiun: My girlfriend broke up.. .. blahblah.. ..these guys hacked my.. ..so now I don't have an safe email.. ..life is totally destroyed.. ..*INSERT OTHER RUBBISH HERE*.. ..the dog died.. ..website hacked 4th time in a row now.. ..3 times on 24 hours.. ..house burned to the ground..
So now, can't you please tell me how to hack youtube/facebook/myspace/*ANY OTHER BIG AND FAMOUS WEBSITE* so I can delete their account so I finally can get revenge?
Or anyone of these:

It was pretty fun to read in the beginning, but the charm of the novelty is far gone since long time ago.
This is only my very personal opinion, so anyone with moderator rights are able to remove this if they want to.
