Of course thats retarded, thats what I was getting at. A hackers convention is rather akin to a drug dealers convention that they have a large group of people who do something that is quite illegal and get together. Hmm..... not very smart if you ask me.

haha... I had to laugh when I read this. To tell the truth, I was kinda thinking the same thing. I'm sure a "Hacker's Convention Day" could turn into a field day for the Feds!

Good point... I can see it now...

"What do you do?"
"I crack into CIA computers..."

...I don't think so.
