How to uglify

How to uglify: Find a nice wall, preferable with some nice details on, and start attacking it with a spray can. This is a real problem not only in Copenhagen but everywhere I've been. I might, and that is a big might, forgive it if the graffiti was beautiful, or at least could be seen as such by someone, but when it's only tagging I feel my blood pressure starting to rise to dangerous levels. And I have some trouble seeing the great in someone who in the middle of the night looks at a wall, that they don't own, and decides that this wall should have their signature on it. A kind of medieval punishment for this would be nice, maybe a day or two in pillory at the nearest square with the spectators given spray cans of their own to use on the offender?
