Hacker Bruce Raisley sentenced to two years in prison for trying to destroy Rolling Stone

Have you ever met people who are absolute geniuses at one, specific thing but at the same time lack any common sense? Bruce Raisley seems like one of those guys.

Raisley was sentenced today to two years in prison, ostensibly for a cyber attack against Rolling Stone. A guy who can program 100,000 computers to attack the magazine that published Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas should know something about the Web, right? But the real reason Raisley ended up before a judge was because he believed that a stranger on the Internet loved him.
