Adam Roy's post about Casey Nocket, a wannabe artist accused of using acrylic paint to deface a number of natural wonders, including Rocky Mountain National Park, and then shrugging off her actions with social-media responses such as, "I know, I'm a bad person," became a repository for some notably vitriolic comments. Here's one distinguished by an intriguing suggestion for punishment.

Karen Erickson writes:

Throw the book at her, at least! She should have to clean that up to the satisfaction of the park service, then spend a few years in prison where she can spend her time painting cells -- to the warden's satisfaction.
