Hi Ana,

I think you are right - however, there are more contextual questions 
that Paul asks which kind of hint towards a more institutional & 
colonial aspect of what is going on.

My judegment is still out on this & I'm wondering who the hacker was & 
what his or her motive was?

wishing you well.
