Not sure I can agree with that.  I have been in this game for a very
long time, but for most of it in places where the world's population
cleaved neatly into two parts: "Authorized Users" who could be
identified by the facts that they had ID cards, Badges, and knew the
door code; and "trespassers" who were all others.

Then you new kids came along and (pointlessly, in my opinion) divided
the later group into the two described above.

See, the way *I* learned it was that part of the creed of the "hacker"
involved "why would I want to play with your systems, mine are much
cooler.";  that is, by definition a "hacker" is in the first group.
