Back when I was at school, I lost my Subject Captaincy, and almost got expelled over realising the system administrator had used a simple formula to turn all our student numbers into all our passwords.

When I came forward with it, they called in my parents and were threatening me with explusion if I didn't tell them how I hacked the password list as "figuring out they're a formula from noticing a pattern in myown and my friends passwords" was considered impossible.

We'll never live in a society where the people who enforce rules know about the systems that operate on them.
