    If they have the minds to put together something like that why not use it for LEGAL activity?

    I'm sure if they really wanted to they could've come up with something that earned them a 1/5th of that but at least they wouldn't be sitting in a jail cell. I mean, why risk it?

    Come to think of it, I had a nasty virus 2 or 3 months ago that gave my computer the same symptoms explained in the article. Wonder if was the same one...

    You gotta know after the first 13 million that it'd be better to just quit than risk being caught. Know when good enough is good enough.

    I never even knew what a "WSO" was until now. (I googled it). Good God, that website hurts my eyes. I still haven't checked out DP or DF or whatever it's called either.

    Why is there a resounding hatred for WF and DP on here? Are they that bad?

    lmao.

    Edit: Nevermind, it IS actually hurting my eyes...

    Maybe it's because I'm used to BHW and its dark colour scheme but dear God what's with all the caps?

    I wouldn't know, I don't use them. I do hear that they are chalk full of noobs. I'm partial to BHW. Once I find something that works, I don't feel a need to find more of the same thing, ya know? BHW fulfills my IM needs, so to speak.
