What do you mean? That the term cracker never existed? That it wasn't the de facto term used to defined malicious hackers for more than a decade until the early 90s? That somehow I constructed my memories of the 80s and invented a new term?
ie, regarding your edit, you got suckered. I do remember BBS's; I actually knew someone who was prevented by a judge's order from using a personal computer for a year because of software piracy, pre-net. But those people were not malicious in any real sense -- they were just "hacking" and liked video games, etc
