    I know Jon's just joking, but DNA is deoxyribonucleic acid. Just FYI.

    Continue to compare them and equate them to the movie, Hackers, that you all used during this article. If you make everyone think that is what real hackers are like, nobody will want to be one. Problem solved.  thumbsup

    3 years of jail for significant DDOS attacks would be fair if proven who did it.



    Or, take the hours of down time times it by 4 and then you got the jail time or community services if it was only a minor attack. No internet if they get community service.

    I was wondering when I was going to hear about something being done about the DDoS attacks or more specially the DDoS kiddies.

    Lets tie them up onto chairs and make them watch Thomas the Tank Engine on endless loop, while randomly being shocked with a stun gun.

    Ashley please stop using John as the co-host.  I love John and wish him the best, it doesn't work for news.  

    Before I am flamed I love him and what he does, my opinion is that he doesn't work for this format. (Don't kill me).

    John is money for improv, on the spot.  He doesn't fit in well on the know.  Surprisingly

    Gus, Ryan, Adam work well. Not a knock on John, the Know isn't the best place for him.

      Personally I like Jon as co-host. While everyone who's co-hosted does it well, I feel Jon brings a more fun and playful atmosphere, than say Gus or Adam. I get informed on the content while still being able to know what is Jon joking around, and what is news.
