Maybe so Bob, but I'm certain you'll agree that the legal systems, 
regardless of your home territory, have been considerably less than 
helpfull in this regard.  No lesson is learned by the script kiddies 
and such of this world if the ruler rapping their knuckles for bad 
behaviour is 6 months to 2 years in coming.  It needs to be done in a 
manner they won't forget, while they are engaging in the activity.

If that means a few formatted hard drives using dd to 
send /dev/urandom to it, so be it.

Cheers, Gene
