Along the lines of "how dumb do you have to be to name your spamming
system hacker1", don't name your illegal spying business "Hackers Are
Us":

Blurb:
"A private detective firm earned tens of thousands of pounds by hacking
into people's computers and bugging telephones, a court has heard.
Active Investigation Services (AIS) had a number of "lucrative
sidelines" under the title "Hackers Are Us", Southwark Crown Court was
told. These included using "Trojan" viruses to enter computers and
hi-tech devices to bug phones, the prosecution claimed."

Figured folks could use the Friday laugh ;-)
