Revenge Served Cold


Wrath_of_khan Ah, Kirk, my old friend, do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? It is very cold in space.

~ Khan, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Khan personifies revenge, doesn't he? Imagine the damage someone like Khan could inflict with the help of the Internet and the latest twisted business idea. For as little as $20 a month, subscribers to this "revenge service" can wreak financial havoc on their enemies. Victims have their utilities shut off, their bank accounts closed, and their credit rating tanked out.

There is no shortage of evidence for the depravity of man today. There is nothing new in making money by victimizing others. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but for some reason, seeing "revenge packages" for sale disturbs me.

Isn't revenge sales illegal? After all, internet and snail mail scams are punishable. (It kind of reminds me of mob-type of mindset.) I'd like to hear from some of the laywer's reading this blog.
