To be fair, you violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act by posting here. In fact you committed a felony that has successfully been used to prosecute a girl for harassing another girl to commit suicide. That felony? Using an alias, which misrepresents yourself, which violates this pre-internet law for ATMs (and I did as well - if anyone goes after me for it, I'm going to see it to court and get the law thrown out, which was not done in the harassment case).
IMO, the Clinton thing was a failure at multiple levels not knowing the law - the people that set up the server, Clinton herself, the people that maintained the servers (because I guarantee Clinton did not), etc. I know not knowing the law is no excuse, but sometimes (like the case above), the law is ridiculously obscure and can be used to prosecute people for things in ways that weren't intended. AFAIK, Clinton was not aware she was committing a crime and I believe that is why no charges were pressed.
