The real question is does a person have the right ( legal right ) of access to the Internet.
That remains to be seen. IMHO net-etiquette should be the rules, and if you/your site
violates too many of those rules, the the net should shut you down for some period of
time. Sooner or later to many denial's of service will change a person's behavior.
Now before you flame me about person's appearing to be someone else (example:accounts that
have been broken into). To me that means all of their accounts are compromised and
I would want to discontinue service to them until thier security does their JOB.
