I agree with Mark. Just ask Max Vision what you get when you do this in the
name of "the forces of good".

Courts and lawyers and judges don't care about right and wrong, they care
about the Law and Money.  The court is,however,  an important place that
really matters because in court, they can take away your computers, your
right to work in your chosen career and your freedom. So it don't matter if
you are the biggest swingingest dick in the land, if you can't get it up in
court ;-).  So please, be a bit wary and a bit thoughtful, I'd hate to see
people end up in prison over this bit of net nonsense,
