The intent is the most troubling part for me as well. As a member of my local hackerspace (hackerspacecharlotte.org), I find it very unsettling that this judge now feels that I have intent to do anything that I'm capable BECAUSE is choose the label hacker. I like to take things (and sometimes code) and re-purpose it to do what I want it to do. Some people call this creativity, or innovation, or you guessed it - hacking. I'm not breaking the law, sometimes I'm not even voiding my warranty. Just because I like to hack stuff, and I don't ever want to stop... and I even want to help others learn to hack to (I'm the president of the hackespace after all, and we do mini hacking sessions at the local children's museum and the children's library on a regular basis), none of this means that I have the _intent_ to commit any crime. To think that anyone could use my my label as a hacker to show _intent_ is appalling. It is equally disturbing that a judge does not know the difference.
