Sick PCs should be banned from the net says Microsoft

RE: Sick PCs should be banned from the net says Microsoft
If this was implemented, one could create a virus with the sole purpose of knocking people off the net. It would spread around while it lay dormant, then on a certain day, BOOM! Hundreds of thousands of computers suddenly are cut off for virus activity or false DRM violations or whatever... The creeps in power would love to use a tool like that for social experiments.

Of course the whole idea of building another layer of security is a waste of time because the miscreants will find a way around it anyway, while everyone else gets reamed.
