    These people who create and post internet viruses need to be shot. Publicly.

    A little too severe.

    Since many, when caught, express surprise that they are treated as criminals, and to satisfy my own urge to just slap them around while telling them what idiots they are - I propose:

    Stocks and Pillories

    Agreed ^^^

    Fear of public humiliation while still alive would most likely be a far greater deterrent than any threat of death, which for many is just too abstract.

    I agree, and would add: flogging (at the option of the convicted party). Many would choose it over years or even months stewing in jail. If it's chosen, it's not inhumane.

    Perhaps we should choose Coentes Slip, where in October 1691 :
    Surveyors begin laying out streets and lots. The council votes a four shilling per week allowance to Top-Knot Betty, another woman and two children, as charity cases. It also votes for the construction of a ducking stool to be built on Coentes Slip, in front of the towne-house.

    But if she's the flogger, then imagine how many pent-up nerds are going to start writing viruses just to get a little action. It'd be pAnDEmoNiuM!
