Would it really be news if all that was reported was "Criminal Commits Crime"?

For example I think no less of 88-year old men, nor think they're all murdering criminals, just because there was a headline "88-year old killed wife with ax".

Now it may be that a person thinks hacker == criminal, but then a such person would not know a hacker (at least one who was not a criminal), and so their view should not affect one. Seeking respect for a group one may associate with, among strangers you'll never meet and whose views you'll never even hear, seems rather silly.

This also allows them more time to surf the web at lunch or maybe go out and have a walk around the building or get a quickie around the corner.

I know quite a few people who would skip both lunch and web surfing to get a quickie around the corner.
