nullsoft harbouring hackers?

CYBER TERRORISTS!

as any webmaster will know, hackers can be a pain in the ass. so why does nullsoft allow a person who has publicly declared that he "maliciously hacks for scorpion and corruption" (or did anyway...heh) on these forums?

are they scared of his revenge? do they think it's funny? or is there another reason?

please, discuss.

justin is a hacker. He once said "HACKISH = GOOD" because thats what a hacker does, he hacks together l33t programmes.

which is linked to wills first law of hacking: "If you think about the developer for more than 1 second, your not thinking about the user enough"
Which is another way of saying that hacked togetther programmes are generally better than thought out programmes. Why? because everything is done with the user in mind.

However, this law falls apart when you are coding for developers, because then you shouldn't be thinking about the user at all. However, if you take this non-hacking stuff nearer to the user, then you end up with a slow, bloated programme, to which requires lots of man-hours to make it less bloated and faster. This approach is slower, and you end up with more elegent code. Case in point: linux, the intel itanium and winamp3.

/me is a perl hacker

And On that day, the Lords of the land said unto their Master Architect, "The temple you have made to the gods of Wasabi and Maki has brought us no great prosperity" and they sent out him into the lands.

As he traveled to a far off land, he found he wasn't traveling alone, but that he had gained companions, and when they found their new land, they started work on a new temple, one that would be OPEN to all who wanted to worship.

from The Book of Wasabi C 12 Vs 09 (pg 2003)
