Everyone who uses the internet should be in jail.

Thankfully, we're one step closer to complete imprisonment with the release of Microsoft's Messenger's new panic button.

It works like this: Microsoft is adding a "report abuse" icon to Messenger that will link any users worried about their anonymous internet buddies directly to online police services.

Internet users are legendarily even-tempered when it comes to online disputes, so I'm sure the police won't be bothered with any messages like, "Jedi443 keeps call the Nintendo Wii the 'Nindumbo Wee.' Arrest him!" or "ZELDaRoolz544's ontological theories are epistemologically unsound! Send the po-po."
