>How about N years of community service finding and fixing security >holes in BSD and SysV Unix? > >enjoy -len I do have some problems with the whole "community service" thing, as appealing as it is on the surface. It presumes a completely uncorruptable legal system. In many districts, back in the days when labor gangs were considered reasonable punishment, a common thing to do just before embarking on a construction project was to pick up everyone who looked at you crooked on "vagrancy" or whatever you could drum up as a charge and sentence them to (lessee, how long will that construction contract take to finish....) Sure saved some counties a lot of money! That's why such programs were made illegal although it does seem to be creeping through the backdoor under the guise of the oh so nice-sounding "community service", who could be against "community service"?! Labor is money, ideas like this make prisoners a profitable commodity which is quite a temptation for corruption. Yes, it's a quandary, but a free and just society always is. I say "professional banishment", at least for some specified period (assuming a conviction, of course, and as judged by a jury of peers etc.) -Barry Shein, ||Encore||
