I think when the tally sheet comes up in the Great Beyond, it will look
something like this: (Please forgive tab damage)

  Original Sin				- 500
  30 Mortal Sins: "Anger", per count	-6000
  30 Lusers LARTed. See above.		+8000
  3 Mortal Sins: "Covetousness"		-1000
  -- Note: "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors' server";
     "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's network";
     "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's funding"
  5000 Venial Sins                      - 500
  3000 Moment of divine grace		+3000
  Favor of God credit: Sysadmin 	+5000
  Sympathy of God credit: Win95		+ 250

Et voila, you're going to Heaven.  You could go covet thy neighbor's Indy
a few more times.  In fact, I think if you tac-nuke AOL central, the bonus
you get from the LARTing give you enough leeway to have your own
fascist-dictator regime for twenty years.
