said by tshirt:Yes, we must be responsible for what we do with our networks but your scenario plays out that inevitably we can be punished for a mistake in a router configuration. That's crazy. said by kxrm:
I respectfully disagree.
With what part?
We are a community?
We share common space?
We must take responsibility?
That if we make no effort to self police, others may be forced to take action?
Yes reaching the point where others MUST step in is undesirable.
and yes stepping in, must be done with great care, but bank robbers (electronic or otherwise) have no socially redeeming value.
