Such is your opinion. I have mine. This type of extortion has no place in our society and people who make these sort of extorions should be removed from society ... PERMANENTLY ... and the more brutal the better. People that write programs like these aren't "hardened criminals" who have nothing to lose. If society made an example of a few of them, by doing public executions, I bet there would be a lot less of them. Remember, these aren't your average 7-11 robbers, these are intelligent, white collar dweebs who would most likely crap themselves if the penalty for this sort of BS was death.
