  • You could easily be prosecuted under the law that made me a felon in Oregon. You knowingly altered the contents of another person's computer without their authorization. Yes, you could probably spend a lot of bucks trying to defend yourself, but if the "victim" were important enough, you'd be where I am now.

    Also, the Canadian law basically makes it illegal to delete anything, so you could be prosecuted there as well.

      No I didn't!!!!

      I simply printed `rm -rf / ` on the screen! Only on the screen!!!

      • And then it printed something like "April Fools :-D" and then something like "Don't you ever, ever, EVER run code you don't understand.

        And that was all! :-) I would never do something to deliberately harm someone, knowing or not the person! I'm not that sort of guy! :-) Please don't get me wrong! :-)
