[NZ4O Spaceweather] Cracker/Hacker

H Paul no I don't want out because of the workload. I enjoy the work and it 
exercises my brain.

No I have no help but don't need any either. It really is a one man 
operation. I do appreciate much all the offers of help that I have received.

I can't prosecute the crackers/hackers because they are overseas. BTW the 
correct term for a person that maliciously damages a web page is a cracker. 
I use hacker also because that is how they are best known in the U.S.

I can't legally go after the harassing jerks because almost all are 
overseas. The few in the U.S. change their email addresses and are hard to 
track down. Even if found it's impossible to prove that the individual 
actually sent the email.
