Trusted Hackrs Nomination


#62

I also nominate @Phantomcypher if only for hearing more about what’s in his driveway! :sunglasses:


#63

He must provide photos of his fleet, or I’ll vote against :slight_smile:


#64

Yes, totally agree. I think a lot of people have contributed a lot to the forum. I can say i am addicted to reading posts. It is a good forum. Thats awesome having the most read post. :slight_smile:

I do not mind about all these badges but sometimes we all need a pat on the back. :slight_smile:


#65

pat

#66

Awesome. No need for badges now. :slight_smile:


#67

I nominate @NY13 for his useful responses


#68

Thanks! I’m glad you like my posts. :slight_smile: I’d like to recommend @vhooloo as well. :slight_smile:


#69

@chrispbacon
@SteveHackr
@vhooloo


#70

I’m not sure how chrispbacon can be considered a “trusted” hackr since he spends much of his time and energy on this forum peddling fake rebates


#71

But for free, so doesn’t that change things a bit?


#72

Nope. Fraud is fraud.


#73

I couldn’t agree more. His dealings with the Lexus rebates are the antithesis of what this forum stands for. If is the type of fraud that will make it a no brainer for Lexus to never do that kind of incentive offer again. Lexus picked a weak vendor to admin the program and several people were able to game them and take advantage of the lack of security.

Hackr or hacking a great car deal is not unethical … fraud is not only unethical, but just not cool.


#75

Ummm. I can tell you first hand the PGA worked for me.


#76

Way to miss the point.


#77

I did, my apologies. I understand that it may be unethical in some ways, however I also consider it an exploit. Being immersed in the IT world with my profession, “hackers” work tirelessly for exploits. I ask you to consider the name “LeaseHackr” and keep in mind that “Hackr” means: A person who uses computers to gain unauthorized access to data.
synonyms: cybercriminal, pirate, computer criminal, keylogger, keystroke logger;

In that context, Mr. Bacon lived up to the “Hacker” name and many benefitted from it.


#78

You can justify it all you want. It’s still fraud. Just because someone leaves their front door open doesn’t mean you should walk in and take their TV.


#79

I hope you don’t go back to that dealer to service your car when/if Lexus rejects your cert. Even if it doesn’t happen, you still used a fraudulent cert to get $1,000.


#80

A hack is a clever solution to a problem. You can ask the admins but I’ll bet they never intended to use the cybercrime connotation of the word.


#81

Whether they did/didn’t, it still embodies the site, which may bring some nefarious tactics in which some are uncomfortable to be associated with. You said it, “A hack is a clever solution to a problem”. Problem: Dealerships like to pull one over on customers sometimes. i.e. THIS GUY. Clever Solution: Utilizing an exploited certificate to level the playing field.

May I suggest you spare us the “Dudley Do Right” speech.
