yeah.. i suppose i got what i deserve

as far as passwords go, yes there are ways to get someone's password. but i doubt anyone here will take the time to explain them to you. most people don't appreciate questions like this. but i'm feeling nice today. well, kind of. so i won't rip on you for it. if you really want to learn about things like that, you need to read read read as much as you can.. and then read some more. you learn more by reading and doing it yourself anyway.

you probably won't find anything at those sites telling you exactly how to get someone's password. but you need to understand security and such before you even attempt something. plus, there are just some really cool things to read about other than that on those sites. so, read read read... take what you learn, and apply it. you can usually get someone's password just by talking to them, don't specifically ask them what it is, but ya know.. just make casual conversation. most places, as a far as email goes, have a password reminder question. so you can base your conversation off that. also, there are password crackers... if you look around packet storm they have all kinds of tools like that.
so, i hope that somewhat helps. and btw: like i mentioned before, most people don't like questions like this, so please don't ask again.
