    I wished our Congress and other countries through INTERPOL would institute extremely strict laws that would make quick, harsh, or long-lasting punishments for all these hackers, spammers, and virus writers.

    I worked on a company computer until almost 3:00 AM due to some intruders.

    This is an interstate violation. I think Congress should invoke mandatory sentences for those caught, and make it extremely to go after those at fault.

    Another area is SPAM. This is really an intrusion into my computers, and yours as well.

    Just last week I got so much SPAM that I tracked it down to a Meriplex USP server in Houston. Their webmaster got my email, shut down the company using their services, and even called to thank me, AND kept me posted step-by-step via mail until they identified the users. The even sent me a thank you for appreciate note in the same regard. I was impressed that we CAN make a difference if we'd just complain to the right folks.

    Just my thought. To bad it's illegal to shoot people like this. That would definitely put a stop to this terrible enigma plaguing computers around the world.

    Whiz, I've often thought the same thing.


    If I was King, some people wouldn't like it. I'd invent a new government thug agency to track these low lifers down and cut their balls off with a rusty butter knife.

    It won't stop the worst offenders - the Russian criminals who are perpetuating the Anti-Virus 2008, Anti-Virus Pro 2009, and other similar trojans.
