talking about the 31337 h4x0r kids with the bad attitude. They're posting right
here on this system, intermixed with others who often share the attitude, but also
have a bit more civility. I saw this once again while learning about the Hewlett
Packard 3300C flatbad scanner ... which has zippo Linux support from HP. And I don't see that
changing. Keep reading and maybe I can explain why." From Slashdot.
