Hey Buzz Crew
In episode 955 there was discussion regarding the use of proxy servers in the commision of a crime causing an increase in jail time. This was compared to wearing a disguise during the commision of a “personal” crime. In many places it is illegal to this and you will be charged for doing so. I found numerous examples on the net from Canada, the UK and the US (mostly Delaware???) of people being charged with wearing a disguise while committing a crime.
Although I recognize the US Sentencing Commision is looking at this as an automatic increase to sentence time where as I am speaking only of charges I still think the parrallel is there.
The question is will it be illegal to wear a ski mask while committing cyber crimes???
Love the show

Hey buzz Crew!
This is Siavash from Iran, in episode 952, when Brian was talking about Mitsubishi , he said there is no top level product in their product line , Hey man! You are in car tech, have you ever heard of a car named Mitsubishi Evo 9 or Evo 10 ? the cars than changed they way all the car makers now make their rally cars, they only cars that could hit Subaru Impreza in the face. They are one of the cars in the world with the highest level on technology. I'm not trying to plug anything, all I say when you talk about Mitsubishi the first thing that comes to your mind a EVO 9 not a flat panel TV.
Love The Sh0w!
