A 20 year old is young, but he is NOT a kid. I was back from Vietnam at 20 years old.

I hope the young man gets what he deserves. If some one did the same thing to Obama, the hacker would be called a "Racist Hacker."

OH.MY.GOD. So you think that spelling is acceptable for a 15 year old? I spelled better than that in 3rd grade and I am not kidding. Most people do, thank goodness.

So we should just go with the "boys will be boys"??
that is bull crap!
Part of what is wrong right now is "no accountablity"
he needs to be held accountable and have his little butt hauled in front of a judge and do some time.

This is great, let's blame the victim,

If Sarah Palin parks her car in Shady Town, leaves her louis vuitton purse on the car dashboard, then goes tanning for 3 hrs. When she comes back, she finds her car windows smashed -- her purse gone.

Yes of course the blame is on the robber. But wouldn't you agree, what Sarah Palin did... WOW WHAT A FRIGGEN IDIOT?!

Now imagine if, within her purse, the robber now has YOUR personal information. Wow, what a friggen DANGEROUS idiot.

But then she would have to take personal responsibility for her stupidity and you know how much the right hates that.

Would you be just as harsh towards The Obamas, living in their upper class neighborhood, go to bed and leave their door unlocked?

Along comes a typical white, racist, sexist, homophobic Republican sensing an opportunity.

He walks in, holds all of them at gun point (assault rifle, of course) and forces them (again at gun point) to listen to the terrible things he's going to do to them.

After several hours of listening to Rethuglican diatribes, the guy takes the children's piggy banks, empties The Obama's refrigerator and spray paints conservative manifestos on the walls of their gorgeous home.

And you would blame The Obamas?

That's harsh, man. Real harsh.

Yes, I would say the same for the Obamas. I'm not blaming the victims for this act, I'm saying that she could've done more to protect herself. It is not her fault, not in the slightest.

And /b/ would've hacked Obama's email if it was on Yahoo as well. Because it's so easy to get into.

As for dem/repub bias, /b/ has no bias. All /b/ cares about is causing havoc throughout the internet. THey are legion, and they are afraid of no one. They were even talking about hacking the FBI after the incident. Nothing is sacred in the board. Nothing. So, it's not the democrats, it's not political. It's just some internet superheroes doing what they do best. It's why I don't send personal info through email.
