This is getting ridiculous!  If what this person did is a crime, 
then Kurt Vonnegut shold have been inside long ago, as should ANYONE 
(eg. Frank Herbert of White Plague fame, and Robin Cook of Terminal) 
who have proposed similar (and equally unworkable) schemes!!

Less of the hysteria, and less of the ridiculous and semi-illiterate 
postings such as the one above!  If the guy wasn't being 
tongue-in-cheek, then he is sufficiently uninformed as to be 
harmless; if he was, then he got his response, and we should all 
calm down!  Please!!
