    Appropriate punishment for the crime of spam?

    I don't know about you but I'm bombarded with the stuff - via email, blog comments, forum postings and even website contact forms.

    If I ever got my hands on the culprits in a quiet locked room, I'd... Actually, I don't know what I'd like to do most. Perhaps a few well-aimed kicks to sensitive places and then a couple of smacks around the head. But then what? Maybe force them to send personalised individual letters of apology to every person whose time they've wasted and whose day they spoiled. They can go free when they're done.

    Punishment. Retribution. Or what?

    Imagine you are in this situation, what would you do?

    Write one spam message out by hand for each electronic one they sent. And hand deliver it.

    I take it you have a penchant for travelling if that's what you'd do. You must have millions of journeys ahead. Bon Voyage!

    If you meant that they should do so, then as soon as they've done one they won't be in the locked room any more. Besides, you've unleashed the scum on the world again.

    How about a lifetime ban from using the Internet?

    Make them endlessly watch Shaktimaan or Dawn French on the telly.
