Hacker & Dirty Tricks Policy

Please don't hack my site.

I, the candidate, am a high-tech professional. I understand the challenge posed to techies to secure IT resources and defeat IT security. But I do not agree with the destruction of the personal property of others. This is a true crime because it is an invasion upon the God given rights of others - Life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. It is also, in the case of web sites, an infringement of the First Amendment right of the owner(s) of the website.

There is no challenge here. There is no extraordinary protection applied to this site. I ask that hackers understand that this candidate is dedicated to preserving the Internet in an unregulated and untaxed state to preserve the Internet as the People's network as opposed to the controlled and inaccessible media.

As you know, the Internet is under attack. Malicious hackers in the private and government sectors are only part of the problem. Who are among the culprits probing private sector and other government IT resources?

Non-destructive techies meeting the challenge, " because it's there."
Destructive hackers who enjoy the destructive take-down.
Politicians & bureaucrats who can't wait to tax and regulate the Internet.
Ideologues who wish to control Internet content, restrict free speech & limit knowledge transfer.
Cyber warfare groups (both public & private: domestic & foreign) honing their skills.
National Security Intelligence & law enforcement groups probing for information.
Economic Espionage & Corporate Intelligence groups probing & stealing competitors' proprietary property.
