Excuse me. Are we done posturing and beating our chests?
I joined this group so that I might be able to keep a breast of security
issues. Instead I find myself appalled at the sheer lack of professionalism.

The computer and software industries owe script kiddies NOTHING. Script
kiddies bring down sites, wreak havoc on networks, use compromised as
platforms for attack and all without knowing how what they are using works
or what harm they are doing.
The people owed thanks are the people who find and report vulnerabilites,
who attempt to offer fixes and workarounds, and yes people who write and
publish proof of concept code and tools.
But there is a huge difference between supplying a proof of concept and
using one to gain unauthorized access to companies system.

Give him whatever he asks for. I want to see him behind bars if he plans
to use it to gain unauthorized access to people's systems (not that I'm
saying he is)
