    I was recently quoted in a WashingtonPost.com article saying I was in favor of fines against people who emit viruses or worms (not just originate, but infectees who perpetuate attacks.) There wasn't any meat in that article describing my proposal, so it comes off sounding kind of cold. I've had this proposal for quite some time, after being asked by a U.S. Senator staffer once to write something up to identify what's lacking in the U.S. National CyberSecurity Strategy document.

    I've tried to explain it as clearly as I can, and have included a poll to take your feedback on whether you think the idea would be valuable to you. I'd appreciate it if you'd give it a read and take the poll.

    I hereby acknowledge that the poll is hosted on my little T1, so you may well experience bandwidth-related fun. At least you only have to click two buttons to take the vote.

    Feel free to repost this request to other lists.
