Clueless users should be jailed?

You've heard me rant about this one before. Prentice Hall's
Professional Technical Reference has an article which discusses the author's point of view where each and every user on the Internet should be held legally responsible for their hacked systems flooding the planet with spam.

Again, I don't believe you can hold my grandmother responsible for someone hacking her Tivo.

A. Lizard likes to say things like "due diligence" but ignores the fact he may only be able to sue for those instructions in the booklet that came with the device. After he can prove that everyone consistently reads all of the directions in those multi-language documents.
