I think his punishment should be having to play online 24/7 Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, against only aimbotters/wallhackers with high pitched children's voices, whom none of which paid for the game, on a TV with no mute feature.

While his scores/stats and video footages of him playing were posted online for others to enjoy.

Why are there so many haters of Geohot? He is just a guy who is very curious about consumer technology. I wish more people would be as ambitious and interested about the inner workings of hardware and software.

Cause people think he is solely responsible for allowing piracy on the PS3 for some stupid ass reason. I thought I hated people when I worked at McDonalds, I still find the general population is still incredibly ignorant this includes a huge chunk of OCN posting things with out thinking or sources to back it up. Though OCN isn't as horrible about it other web sites piss me off with the shear stupidity of the commenters.

Dude, people ordering at McDonald's are feaking idiots. I haven't actually worked for McDonalds, but I've done work at McDonalds during business hours and damn, people are arses, dumbasses or both.

Anyways, I don't get the GeoHot hate either. Sony fanboys maybe?

Really? Cos I've provided plenty of sources as to why I think he's a docuhebag in various threads, as well as a lot of people who defend him like he's some kind of savior of mankind.

It's his personality. He can appear very childish at times when he isn't getting his way.

The donation thing really upset some people. Geohot said he wasn't going to settle for anything less than what he was demanding. People wanted to see him win in court so they donated money so he could have a fighting chance. This outcome was a disappointment for those who put money into this.
