Windows 7: Dad accuses Disney of calling his 11-year-old a hacker

Dad accuses Disney of calling his 11-year-old a hacker

Dad accuses Disney of calling his 11-year-old a hacker
The Disney Company is always so good at accessing one's inner child. The hope, the joy, the glory of absolute love, family goodness, and everything that sails in it.

So I am thrown a little off course when I hear that Disney may have falsely accused an 11-year-old boy of hacking the Pirates of the Caribbean video game and disabled his account.

The account I have read comes from the boy's dad, Brian Guy. Guy is a manager of MySQL's hardy pirates at Sun Microsystems. He also has a blog, which was positively fulminating with frustration Tuesday, as Guy told the story of his son's video game review site.

The site, Carsonreviews.com, seems to this untrained eye to be a rather fine construction, full of wit and wisdom. For example: "While my parents are busy cleaning the house for Thanksgiving, I am busy checking out free online games.= )"
Yet Carson's dad says: "Disney has falsely accused my 11-year-old son of hacking the online game, and Disney temporarily banned his account. They sent him a curt e-mail lecturing him about something he didn't even do."

Ironically, it's Disney who are the real hackers.

Look at how they 'hack' kids minds and fill them with pap

Another stupid article about how my kid can do no wrong. He is only 11 years old and knows nothing about pirating software. He's such a perfect kid. So parents need to get a hold on life, kids can do some pretty amazing things when they set their brains in motion. Get over it.

I think I have to agree with this, to an extent.
yeah the kid did use third-party software to do so, but he probably didn't realize the seriousness of this and didn't expect to be caught. or he could be a brat. who knows.

Didn't you get the memo? Kids are born perfect today. Part of that perfection is that they can do no wrong and therefore aren't subject to blame in any way, shape or form.

Modern kids are great

That cabinet got thrown out ages ago. It was just full of stuff that wasn't going to be used and, to be honest, was cluttering the room. It just had to go.
