    1st – let’s be honest, I’m sure he’s not the first to do the play on words with the name… I don’t think it has aniyhtng to do with what culture he’s from… plus, he’s making a point of throwing one’s life away by doing criminal activity – if you’re caught more on the name pun then you’re missing the point. Yes, a different analogy could’ve been used – but was the one used really in such bad taste? I admit, instead of making fun of actions (which he has a choice over doing), it’s making fun of a name (which he most likely had no choice in – unless he had it legally changed somewhere along the line)… but still. 2nd – sadly, until cyber criminals start to get caught an punished more… I highly doubt things will change. It’s viewed as a risky job – but with a fairly low chance of getting caught and a lower chance of getting any type of punishment for your actions. Do I agree with the actions, no – but I get why plenty of people are willing to do it and aren’t scared off by thinking of the consequences too much just yet.
