Let's see...

* I don't know how many, at minimum, those who receive
  court subpoenas telling them to.

* Do you leave a user connected if they are in violation
  of your AUP and is wreaking havoc on your network and

* Perhaps you could send a disk out? Or set them up in a
  sandbox-type LAN where they can only visit your internal
  disinfection site?
