ScriptKiddies are useless idiots and should be shot on sight.

They delight in disrupting legitimate networks and services for no purpose other than to stroke their ego, but posess little to no skill of their own besides surfing the web. This is enough for them to find and download scripts (or sploits) written by more clueful people, which do the actual work, while the ScriptKiddie sits in front of his computer, slobbering.

Many of them use Linux simply because they heard it's 1337, and pretend to know how it works. Ditto C, or anything else that may make them appear knowledgeable to outsiders. Their reputation therefore also reflects badly on legitimate Hackers.
