Bans are handed out at moderator discretion.
Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"...

Keep it legal Hacking can be a grey area but keep it above board. Discussion around the legality of issues is ok, encouraging or aiding illegal activities is not
We are not your personal army. This is not the place to try to find hackers to do your dirty work and you will be banned for trying. This includes:
No "how do i start hacking?" posts. See /r/howtohack or the stickied post. Intermediate questions are welcomed - e.g. "How does HSTS prevent SSL stripping?" is a good question. "How do I hack wifi with Kali?" is bad.
No "I got hacked" posts unless it's an interesting post-mortem of a unique attack. Your nan being phished doesn't count.
Sharing of personal data is forbidden - no doxxing or IP dumping
