It's easier for our lizard overlords to grant a pardon if you don't know his name.

Why has his name not been reported?

Perhaps because Germany has some rather strict privacy laws. Until he's convicted he is presumed innocent so it doesn't really matter outside the court what his name is, what his background is.

Perhaps a more interesting question is why did you feel the need to dox him ?

Well yes what he meant was probably "training never had anything to do with a great programmer being great" aka "whatever you do know, you learned none of it from training".

"studying computers since childhood", but had

not had any specialist training, the DPA

reported.

so basically anyone sufficiently motivated can bring CNI down. the absolute state of this.

Using Word != "studying computers"..

(For quite a while, Computing lessons in UK schools seemed to consist of teaching pupils how to use the office suite..)
