Do people find "self-certification" by end-users actually fixes anything?

Or do users keep on clicking on the "Yes, I'm Clean" button?

In the meantime, you still have to carry the traffic from the infected
computer if only on your quarantine "network." Usually the quarantine LAN
is some type of virtual network, so the underlying bandwidth is still
consumed by the traffic. Its amazing what happens to a registration
server when an infected computer tries to register tens of thousands of
times a minute.  Redirecting the user traffic to a quarantine server,
results in that server getting whalloped.
