I'm all for full recourse

I suggest using the top secret tech that allows authorities to send a digital fire to the HDDSs of all SPAMMERs burning up their PC hardware. I hope that film crews are on site when the fires begin and the perps panic. This would be news worth watching.

Re: I'm all for full recourse

Almost as good would be a nasty that triggers the SECURE_ERASE command built into most current hard drives.

I have often wondered if there was a way to access the internal LBA layout table1, and wipe it out, or better yet, scramble it.
