Why do hackers hack? Why do trolls troll? The answer to both these is the same: power. Trolls are often individuals who feel powerless and so they antagonize people online because it gives them a sense of strength and power. Hackers are often (but not always) people who feel somewhat powerless in the real world, and hacking skills give them some real-world power over others. However, hackers have other motivations as well which sometimes include one of the most powerful motivations of all: money. That brings us to one more question: Why do torrenters (or people who upload torrents) torrent? That’s a question that a little more difficult to answer. It takes talking to the source, to find out. Here we look at why people upload torrents.
