i suspect they know who the slime are already.  the patterns must be rather
clear.  the problem is legally enforcable prevention or punisment which does
not also impact legitimate use.

e.g. folk railed against the current license-only access to zone files.
but, imiho, it is better than the old-boys policy which preceeded it, which
was better than the previous wide open policy.  what is a good solution?
