 To most hackers, hacking is not about simply subverting a system to gain some type of advantage or service that would otherwise be inaccessible, or even as a strictly monetary venture.

This can generally be seen when a skid asks for tools that will automatically do the work for them without any base knowledge required, or for someone else to do the work for them. In general, hackers have a natural inquisitiveness about the world around them, and always have the desire to learn new and interesting ideas.
