	Really? Where I come from, one got caned for doing something
 like that, and the aweful consequences f the act were drummed into
 your head.

	You certainly were not put in charge of the candy store, or
 even allowed in there until it was felt that you had earned your
 trust back.

	So, I am not proposing a ban for life. I _am_ proposing we
 take actions to protect our users from him, until the time we feel we
 can trust him again.
