How should idiocy be punished?

Techdirt poses the question as to how spammers should be punished, and notes the lack of decent sentencing guidelines and the like.

Maybe the courts should just wait until the spammer (or phisher) does something really, really idiotic, like try to recruit “processors” for their ill-gotten gains on Monster.com, and then sentence them for money laundering. I think there are some pretty decent guidelines on that end.
