    what you have to ask yourself is, even if this site breaks every law in your land what could you or anybody do about it.

    Think about it, if it were easy to shut sites down that break laws then there would be no kid porn sites on the net as we all agree they are the scurge of the net and they do indeed break every law known to man.

    Hacking is not illegal , untill you do something which matters.

    Learning hacking is not an crime, see there are many attacks which we we all need to know to be safe.

    some like netbios attack, which checks for your shared folders.

    and many.

    What do you mean "untill you do something which matters"? Gaining unauthorized access to a computer system is illegal at least in the United States. The law doesn't care if you're doing it to learn or to be malicious.

    Hacking does not necessarily have to mean unauthorized access.
    Many of the best hackers are hired as security consultants to prevent malicious hacking.

    I wouldn't say that was legal...if it is there is something wrong. It's ok to promote hacking but not doing it?

    There is nothing wrong with this website. People who believe it should be shut down are wrong.

    Correct. However hacking means unauthorized access. What you mean is system penitration testing.

    Other than that, without system admins knowing this stuff, not many sites would still be standing

    We can't really complain about sites like this when you can take hacking and virus-writing courses at some universities!

    I have no problem with this type of site at all, although some of it's users might not be welcome in my home (virtual or otherwise).
