The internet is not the ordinary world

It's normally illegal to fire a gun at someone, whether you miss them or not.

But on the internet nobody ever seems to get convicted of sending malware and ransomware all over the world, they only get chased if they succeed big time (earning more than 100 btc). I work on our mail-server stopping malware and ransomware all the time, a lot of it sails past the AV support which is just a malware design feature because there are no legal efforts to try and stop malware being mailed around the world. Governments are not trying to stop malware, only catch and punish the senders if they catch them (LOL, how often does that happen?)
