Is Your Son a Computer Hacker?

This would be hilarious, except for the fact that I think the guy who wrote it (some years back, but still) was serious.

I don’t know if that makes it more funny, or less …

Even the domain name is funny, as in “delusions of adequacy” …

    From the comments and the exagerations in the article it seems more a satire to than a serious post.

    The whole site was a parody and satire site. Many (all?) of the more prolific authors were regulars on Slashdot and Slashnet IRC.

    Hilarious. This is one of my favorite: “If your son spends more than thirty minutes each day on the computer, he may be using it to DOS other peoples sites.” –Haha

    Clearly satire:

    “BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War.”

    …and…

    “AMD is a third-world based company who make inferior, “knock-off” copies of American processor chips. They use child labor extensively in their third world sweatshops,”

    It is satire.
    He later changes his pseudonym to “Robert Reginald Rodriguez” and makes intelligent comments about computers.

    so, so, SO ridiculous its awsome. but when i still thought he was serious i didnt so much laugh as groan at the obvious ignorance.
    i love the comments, they are almost better than the article: “o my god! im a hacker, i should go turn my self into the cops or kill myself! i use LUNIX! i must be 1337 h4>

    I enjoy reading all the comments on the page from people who thought that it wasn’t a parody. There were several parts in the article that indicated that it was satirical. The whole “Quake is used for training hackers with illegal weapons” bit was so obviously a parody that you’d have to skip over that part to even have a chance of calling that a non-parody.
