There is an old saying I learnt on a typing course «Electricity is a good servant, but a bad master.» The same can be said about the Internet.

Remember the story about the penance given a lady by a saint a few hundred years ago when she had spread infamous tales: «Take a bag of chickens feathers and throw them out through the city and come back tomorrow.»

When the lady returned to complete her penance, the saint said: «Pick the feathers all up again.»

That’s a lot more difficult than a fine!
