Well it's obviously a hypothetical scenario for now but in the future who knows, retina scans etc. The banned would basically become 2nd class citizens, a scary scenario no?

Usually the real top professional hackers, and it's a court order - I think back in the 'phone phreaking' days some guys were also banned from using the telephone service!
Of course prisoners are routinely banned from such types of communication but I don't think that's what you meant.
