    I like the “I was a hacker for the MPAA” post title. Wayback in the 1950s (?), before my time anyway, there used to be a serialised radio (and maybe TV later, but never in Oz as far as I can tell) show called “I was a communist for the FBI”. I think that’s where the line originated. Some of the old radio shows are on-line here.
