I do like the idea of a Big Red Button that you can aim at Internet
companies which "don't have effective abuse departments".

That's Google and Yahoo in the sights for a start ... KABOOM !

Usenet, be interpreted as ironic humour and not as terrorism)

Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to
lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are
rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
diminishing number of producers.
