yeh...gay,

use to mean happy, now it means to draw a bunch of rainbow dicks on yourself, put on a g-string and go dance around in the street like an idiot celebrating his balls out.

I really hate them for what they did to those beautiful rainbows.

Cracker isn't always bad either, it's all about how the person use their skills.

Phreakers weren't bad (necessarilly), neither hackers. Locksmiths/lockpickers can use their skills for good or for evil just the same.


It's like if people start saying traceurs (practitioners of parkour) and freerunners are people that invade private property and leave shoeprints on white walls.

I don't think the term is misused at all.

The word hacker has come to have it's own agreed upon definition by most people walking the earth.  Regardless of how you gain access to somebodies system... people are going to say you hacked and the term is acceptable.

Use cheat codes in games?  Hacking.

not much into semanitcs but cheat codes would technically be cracking, but that is being 100% pedantic. xD

with hackers, it's pretty much set now, because no one ever hears of "good hackers" unless it has a bad connotation attached to it.

the term OP is looking for is enthusiasts I believe.
That is what most people wanted hacker to mean, but that didn't happen, the press makes the rules.

As well as things like the "CPU" isn't the box sitting on your table/floor. But well, it's generally waste of breath Cheesy

Almost spit my pop out, reading this. Yeah, I've heard this a lot as well.*facepalm* "can you take a look at my cpu, I'll bring it by" [expecting to inspect pins of the processor or something, turns out some people consider the tower a cpu]

Well "theoretically speaking", I spend all my time centrally located around this processing unit.

if 'hack' means to modify, then changing its meaning is also a hack.

We called ourselves hackers the early 90's. It meant someone who could do novel and interesting things with their computer or phone. Someone self taught who was exploring the untried potential of computing. None of this nonsense about theft and vandalism. That came later.  Cry
