>i'm hugely enthusiastic that google cancelled reader. this move primarily punishes *takers* merely posing as *hackers*.
I'm hugely hopeful that the power company cancels your electricity, your ISP cancels your internet connection, your phone provider cancels your phone line, your bank cancels your account(s), your local government cancels its law enforcement, education, health care, and road maintenance, and your local shops all close down.
That will punish those worthless *takers*, and sort them out from the *real hackers* who can maintain their *own* society. I've done this; it's the equivalent of fizzbuzz for post-apocalyptic survival.
