    yeah, let programmers write hacking laws. ?!?
    Why the hell not?
    Oil companies get a big fat seat at the table when energy laws and industry regulations are being forged, and guess what?
    We don't even get standing room in the fucking corner.

    Fossil fuel energy executives frack with abandon because they were the ones who got to write the 'regulations' (ha ha ha) and people whose tap water is now flammable are told to go pound sand.

    Why the hell shouldn't programmers and hackers and IT professionals who actually understand that the internet isn't just a bunch of t00bs that trucks drive through dumping emails into your aol inbox.

    It's past time for the laws to be changed, and WE need representation and a voice in how those laws are crafted, because they sure as fuck don't have a clue.

      since when did we carve out exceptions to standing against industry people writing the laws for themselves?

        should always have a seat at the table. That was what our 'representatives' were supposed to be, once upon a time.
        Sadly, once big business was given free rein to 'assist' in writing their own regulatory legislation, we the people got pretty much sent down the rabbit hole.
        I'm suggesting that we be included in crafting legislation that meets criteria established by a broad base of experts and interested parties, NOT talking about carving out exceptions to standing against industry people writing their own laws. Just including 'us' in the process. Fair is fair.
