I love it! Wayne Newton as punishment.[1] In light of the recent *ster thread,
I can envision the kind of retribution the copyright holders might seek. "We'll
drop all charges if you let us replace all links with pointers to an extended-
length version of Wayne Newton's "Danke Schön". I can see Tom Whore pop an
aneurysm now... :-)

This brings to mind other tit-for-tat style punishments... "Pirate some
software? We'll give you a pirated copy of Win2.001k[2] and make you
use it!"

[2] I can't find the reference, alas, but early copies of Windows 2001
have made it out into the wild. Who in their right mind would want to
run an early, even-more-buggy M$ OS?
