Here is a good anecdote by Richard Feynman, the patent troll, but also physicist (audio only): :P :lol:

Here is an interesting hobby: :o :lol:



I would say that being around here is much more rewarding. :D

A word of warning: Be careful about "OPSEC" if you actually do try this* - use a throwaway email acount, make sure he/she/they can not figure out who or where you are etc. And be polite.

* And no, I would not do this myself. :|

Ever read or even skim though an EULA before clicking "I Accept"?



Thankfully most open source licences are relatively easy to read and comprehend, with MIT and BSD style licences being the easiest and Creative Commons licences being the hardest (except perhaps CC0). I you have not yet read the GNU GPLv2 I strongly recommend at least skimming through it.

This is a follow-up to a James Veitch TED Talk about playing with spammers/scammers I mentioned some time ago.

Enjoy! :twisted:
