The following could constitute a possible crime under this  
legislation, and lead to the CLUG mailing list server being shut down:

"Bloody Windows... every time I use it I want to reach for the  
'inflict pain upon the programmer' button. Heck, feature X was so  
annoying I want to just strangle the living daylights out of the guy  
responsible for it ..."

"I tried to fix a friend's computer today - they run Windows, but the  
machine didn't come with install media, and the recovery partition  
was corrupted. It would be so nice if a genuine Windows install disk  
would just magically appear every time I needed to repair some broken  
Windows installation."

"I don't like this new law. We should kick John Howard out. I'm sure  
25 years as Supreme Ruler is getting to him."
