I was fully expecting to, upon checking the forums this morning, find that was the case and everyone was cheery and pleasant, with no restrictions placed upon who I can give birthday hugs to.

I was just reacting to the fact that at face value this whole thing seems to be a pretty unpleasant way to treat a man on his birthday. Admittedly though, I have absolutely no knowledge of the context behind it and therefore should probably be keeping my mouth shut and, indeed, my arms closed.

The thing is though, if you believe that the human mind is deterministic and therefore free will does not exist, those legislating for and administering the punishment have no free will in the matter either, making it something of a moot point.

I suppose that this raises the issue of punishment.
