who cares what hacker means. There's lots of valid definitions floating around out there. Don't try to constrict anybody to a single meaning. Sure, it'd be simpler that way, but that's just not the fact of things.
If Gizmo feels you don't match HIS definition of hacker, then you can just deal. I personally feel uncomfortable if people consider me a hacker, but I can see their point. I've hacked, so therefor to some I must be a hacker. Makes perfect logical sense though I disagree with it. I just be sure they're clear on what I DO and DON'T do rather than what I "AM", then all is good.
