Thanks for coming, and please crucify a spammer today!

ADDITIONAL NOTE:It is estimated that around 200 spammers account for 90% of the spam. This makes crucifixion not only a modest proposal, but an eco-friendly one. Unlike the Romans, we wouldn't need to denude entire forests to fuel the cross market. (If need be, we could always use entirely recycled materials from outmoded computers which might otherwise pollute landfills.) Unlike taxation of the Internet (or other federal schemes which have been proposed), this would do no harm to anyone except a very small, malevolent minority. Talk about Utilitarian Utopia!
