in reply to Ethical considerations of responding to posts made by someone obviously up to no good

1) ignore completely 2) delete and ban 3) try to educate the poster 4) give a malicious answer that hurts the scammer if he is dumb enough to blindly run code from the internet 5) report to the authorities
  1. If you're not an experienced Monk or you just get pissed off to the point you feel like throwing something
  2. If you're a site admin, and the person has been consistently abusive to other members or a major distraction to the site as a whole
  3. If they are relatively new to this site and/or the Internet in general, and haven't been educated on netiquette yet. If the problem is repeated consistently, see 1 or 2
  4. I don't condone this, and I'm sure the people who own this site don't either. What happens if they work at the hospital your Mom is in critical care at and the security is lax to the point that malicious code can disable live-saving equipment?
  5. If it affects life, liberty or freedom of you or a loved one, go for it
