Forrest Gump?  Well, Forrest, didn't your momma ever tell you that stupid
is as stupid does?  Let me explain a little about what 'stupid' does.

'Stupid' mails us shit like this without knowing jack q. shit about who we
are and what we do, even when that information is available on our web

'Stupid' assumes that we know a damn thing about who the fuck 'Maradona'
is or even remotely give a squirty shit about him.

'Stupid' seems to think he knows what "every hacker" cares an unwashed
rat's ass about, when he is clearly not a hacker himself and wouldn't know
a hacker if one fellated him in the backseat of his mommy's station wagon.

'Stupid' cares so much about some meaningless rivalry between athletes
that he'd try to get someone to commit a crime because of it.

'Stupid' is too god damned lame to figure out how to break into a site
himself, so has to go beg people he knows nothing about to do so.

'Stupid' assumes we would even -consider- hacking a site just because some
moronic stranger mails us out of the blue asking us to do so just because
he has his panties in bunches over some cheesy sports figure.

'Stupid' mails complete strangers to solicit them to commit a felony that
crosses international boundaries without knowing if those complete
strangers are the kind of people who would turn you in to the authorities
for attempting to solicit such a crime.

So I think I'd have to agree, there, Forrest.  Stupid -is- as stupid does.
