Exactly.  I am a hacker, but I have never done a single illegal (computer
related) thing in my life.

I had mentioned once referred to myself as a hacker in front of my boss and
COO ... they both turned to me and went pale.  They had a talk to me later
about me doing things and I had to spend half an hour clarifying definitions
for them.

Thanks, media!  It is sad that now people are having to use "white hat" and
"black hat".
