RE: black hat .cn networks
Thank you Franklin, for clarifying many things. Language is indeed a big issue for non-indo-europeans. Basically, anyone that uses a non-romance script (cyrillic, chinese, hiragana/katakana, arabic, cuniform, etc). The problem is that most folks don't realize that this goes both ways. We all face the same barriers in the other direction. Information gets distorted both ways. Add to this, the normal human tendency to speculate [negatively] in the absence of data and there is a huge potential for misunderstandings and myth-creation. The real problem is that we have to tame/banish these crackers on all sides. Hardening our own systems is not enough. We have to banish the vandals as well. Destroying someone else's property/hard work, simply because the opportunity presents itself, is/should be considered highly unacceptable/uncivilized behavior and punished accordingly, by every civilized person. -- ROELAND M.J.
