    Where Do We Stand

    I Have been studying Computer Security for 2 years and i never really thought of this , but finally i asked the question to myself "What Should I call myself"? a Cracker? No Because i Respect the systems i penetrate.Lamer? No Because i do not get off on using punters or other ao progz , nor do i ask lame questions.Newbie?i dont think so , because ive been doing this for so long.Hacker?That Could be a possibility.
    Sorry Everyone about all of this , My Mind is just Boggled on who i am and what i am , sorry if im being a pain in the ass.

    I would have to say noobie. If I remember right a newie is a person that is trying to learn. Well if that is true I would have to say I am a noobie and I love it. But what does it matter what others call you. One person might call you one thing and yet another person call you something else. Just keep learning all that you can and never stop bettering your self and call your self what ever makes you feel good but at the same time make sure you live up to what you call your self. Don't clam to be a white hat when you are not. And never undergrade your self.

    You are n01100110, who knows what you know and does what you do. Labels are for those suffering from an identity crises not someone secure in their being.

    like Conf1rm3d_K1ll says "who cares?"
    Bukhari:V3B48N826 “The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”

    Here's what I'd call you

    I'm going with the label of a responsible cyber-citizen, and God knows the world needs more of you and others like you. You seek understanding with no malicious intent....my hat is off to you!

    Hehe...I'm sorry...it's funny.

    But yeah, as it has been pointed out, it doesn't really matter. In the end, names mean nothing - it's what's inside that counts.

    (By that I mean what's inside your head - knowledge and skill...yeah...you get the point...hopefully)
