How can one teach somebody to do something responsibly?

Wrongdoers (and people in general if there are no taboos or inhibitions) tend to get the max out of their acquired skills. You could maybe implant some inhibitor mantra into their psyche: I send SPAM, the police knocks on my door. Repeat after me! :). I don't believe you can make responsible by teaching a grown up that is not responsible in the first place.

Some other related thoughts: Persuasion doesn't work (TM). Manipulation is 1000 times more effective. Lie, lie, mislead, pull the strings! Maybe this is all about responsible teaching.

Ah, maybe your meditation involves the m-word. IMHO, that concept should be avoided altogether when dealing with the unwashed crowds of the Innurnet, esp. spammers. You're only wasting neurons.

Another (unrelated to the topic) variation of the quote that I found on the 'net: Give a man a fish, he owes you a fish. Teach a man to fish, you give up your monopoly on fisheries!

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
