Is Your Son a Computer Hacker? is the name of a eight year old magnificent essay on Written by a wonderful human being with many redeeming qualities, the lulzy article is infamous for exposing hackers for who they really are: 13 year old boys who aren't really hackers. However, anyone under the age of 18 knows that it's nothing more than the misinformed musings of a concerned parent. They were, of course, wrong and posted hate mail, proving themselves to be idiots. Also notice how the names are characters from the Brady Bunch.

Most American families use trusted and responsible Internet Service Providers, such as AOL.

Top secret hacker assembly
[...] If you find any of these hacking manuals in your child's possession, confiscate them immediately. You should also petition local booksellers to remove these titles from their shelves. You may meet with some resistance at first, but even booksellers have to bow to community pressure.

T. Reginald Gibbons,

Quake is an online virtual reality used by hackers. It is a popular meeting place and training ground, where they discuss hacking and train in the use of various firearms. Many hackers develop anti-social tendencies due to the use of this virtual world, and it may cause erratic behaviour at home and at school. If your son is using Quake, you should make hime understand that this is not acceptable to you. You should ensure all the firearms in your house are carefully locked away, and have trigger locks installed. You should also bring your concerns to the attention of his school.

BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War. It is based on a program called "xenix", which was written by Microsoft for the US government.

They may also be used to break into people's stereos to steal their music, using the "mp3" program.

In your internet, corrupting your children.
Torovoltos is a notorious hacker, responsible for writing many hacker programs, such as "telnet", which is used by hackers to connect to YouTube on the internet without using a telephone.

T. Reginald Gibbons,

If you see this image, your computer is FUCKED.
If you see the word "LILO" during your windows startup (just after you turn the machine on), your son has installed lunix. In order to get rid of it, you will have to send your computer back to the manufacturer, and have them fit a new hard drive. Lunix is extremely dangerous software, and cannot be removed without destroying part of your hard disk surface.

T. Reginald Gibbons,

If your son is failing courses in school, or performing poorly on sports teams, he may be involved in a hacking group, such as the infamous "Otaku" hacker association.

Ok whatever your name is, you are a moronic piece of shit. I bet your dad raped you as a kid, and dont even bring Jesus into this, him and computer hackers have nothing to do. You attend parties with your kids? Come on you little piece of shit, are you afraid that your shitty mormon kids are going to have sex? Yeah right. And where the hell did you get this "how hackers dress"? Your son is probably just wearing bright clothes to get attention because his self conciouss parents ignore him because he is a "hacker". God, you fucking moron parent.
