That's a buncha bullshit.... The good TRUE hackers are typically highly paid programmers and people with a LOT of experience... those not willing to give it up for legitimacy. They're not your run of the mill IT specialists, or kids who can steal MP3s or rip movies. They often have years of PRACTICAL experience in cracking codes, breaking into shit and stealing even more shit. and certainly NOT the "oh ill take $11 dollars an hour because I'm MS certified... and oh yeah I've hacked my neighbors network" type. You underestimate REAL hackers... and you won't hire them I assure you. Even the been-busted-before ones. You could never put up the money they are accustomed to getting.
