They spend all of their waking hours cleaning computers

Nothing is more effective when it comes to deterrance, than making people clean up the messes they make. It's sheer drudgery. I'm sure that the Government (Federal, State Local, and all of the School systems in America) has enough work to keep these playfull individuals busy for decades. I don't just mean cleaning off viruses either. They should be forced to clean off adware, malware, spyware, duplicate files, bad CRCs, obsolete programming, the whole nine yards. They should have to fix trucated files, optimize and revitilize hard drives, and pop the casing and vacumn the thing out while they're at it. A few months of drudgery will take the fun out of playing GOD over the internet.
