The mischievous fellows at attrition.org have long loved to goof on
people who send them e-mail asking for illegal hacking services instead
of, say, the data-breach statistics that have become a specialty of the
security site. A congressional aide who wanted help boosting his college
GPA was an all-time classic, but they get these kinds of requests all
the time and collect them on a page called Going Postal.
Here's a recent example involving attrition.org's "lyger" in a
back-and-forth e-mail exchange with someone from Dubai who has
apparently not seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
