Are people really THIS STUPID?!?!?!

Image representing Yahoo! as depicted in Crunc...Image via CrunchBaseI participate in Yahoo! Answers, where members post questions to be answered by other members. And some of the questions are real "howlers". here's one:

Where Can i Download A free Legal Keygen or serial number?

For those who are not familiar with software, most software will NOT work unless you enter a serial number when you install it. A "keygen" is a program written by hackers that can generate such serial numbers randomly. As you can imagine, such programs cannot be legal, as it cheats the software maker out of their money.

Which makes the question above beyond ridiculous and into totally moronic scale.

However, that's not the worst offender. Here's one better.

Will someone please help me hack someone else's Yahoo! Mail password?

No, I'm not making this up. This person claims to be helping a female friend who suspect her husband is seeing some other woman and using Yahoo! mail as contact. Does this person not even THINK that 1) this is illegal 2) Yahoo's use policy specifically forbids any sort of this behavior, and 3) Yahoo! Answers may NOT be the best place to ASK such questions?
