Scout Comment (KM4NNP):
BBC 2 Hash House Harriers: Do you remember that time at DEFCON 24 when you spotted me in the Aries Packet Hacking Villages? I was wearing a fox hat, blinking lights, and sweeping for a radio signal I later decoded across two bases. I still have the capture of the code. Are you curious? You thought I was cool (Yep, Sadler and I placed on the scoreboard Internationally that year for sweeping or Aries Security Packet Hacking Village), and it turns out you're right! And ... I'm English, and an Aries, too. =].
Tl; Dr. Yes! I will accept that interview request if the terms are correct

Lockpickers and Lovelocks - Ethical Rules of Engagement.

Problem: In many places, lovelocks are clipped from the public property they inhabit, and thrown to waste by ordinance workers. Here at Information Security Society, we have a great passion for the art of lockpicking and a great respect for other people's lovelocks, so we've asked how we can help preserve these tokens of love, while protecting lovelocks from hitting the inevitable metal bottom of a municipal dumpster.

In sum, "lovepicking" is the answer! To best explain lovepicking, we've shared the "Ethical Rules of Engagement", authored by The Open Organisation of Lockpickers (TOOOL).

Ethical Rules of Engagement for Love Picking, by TOOOL.

1. Public Locks Only - The first Golden Rule of all sportpicking is "Do not pick locks that don't belong to you." Thus, Love Picking can only be considered OK if you are working with locks that local ordinance would define as "abandoned property" and which therefore do not belong to anyone else. This may seem like a stretch, but what we wish to make clear is that it is NOT ok to pick locks — even "unused" Love Locks — if they are on private property or otherwise not in a public space.

2. Threatened Locks Only - This takes the above principle a step farther... TOOOL finds locks beautiful and we applaud the sentiment behind Love Locks. Therefore, if any city or municipality does not take action to remove Love Locks, we feel that sport pickers should similarly refrain from opening them. We only support the picking of Love Locks in places where they are regularly cut off by work crews or maintenance teams.

3. Pick to Preserve & Display - Love Locks that are removed as part of a sportpicking outing should not sit idle in someone's personal collection, nor should they be kept as trophies on someone's shelf. A Love Lock, once opened by Love Picking, should ultimately be locked closed again... ideally on some other artistic structure, and one that is designed for this purpose and which will not be subject to removal.

4. Care & Kindness Trump Speed & Glory - While sportpicking competitions often feature boastful posturing and frenzied hand movements as everyone involved seeks the fastest times and the highest rank, we feel that Love Picking should be conducted with an atmosphere of casual camaraderie. At the end of the day, measuring the total weight of the locks that have been removed may be permissible as a matter of interest... but anything to do with stopwatches, leader boards, and other features typical of events like LockCon are out of place, in our view. 11/22/2014
