How about we just ship everyone who falls for a phishing scam off to some
uninhabited island somewhere.
But really, I think requiring users to use a public/private key system to
secure all financial transactions would be a good step in the right
direction. Though I also see users easily being fooled into screwing up
even that. So who knows.
