In Reply to: What punishment should be handed down to virus creators? by Marc Bennett
I don't see why anyone should be punished for writing a virus as an exercise in a contained environment.
It is the people who seed such a virus out in the real world (whether they wrote it or not), who should be force-fed bits of hardware damaged by the virus.
After a guy has had three or four hard drives rammed down this throat, he'll be far less likely to repeat the practice, won't he.
