No. I think we finished with that sometime in the middle ages.

no thats similar to bullying
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/2/06 - 12:05:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.It is a very destructive kind of punishment and that person would have to bear that shame for a very long time in his life!
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/2/06 - 12:08:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it's an unnecessarily cruel one.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/2/06 - 12:11:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, humiliation is degrading. It shouldn't be used as a form of punishment.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/2/06 - 12:17:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
It very effectivly punishes people, but its not acceptable.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/2/06 - 12:48:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that would cruel.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/3/06 - 4:08:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Absolutely.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 12/4/06 - 2:52:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I doubt it.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 12/4/06 - 2:59:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes it is, but it depends on the situation and the people involved.

What she said. As for humiliation being effective, I don't know about the lot of you, but when I was a teen, my Mom could get me to behave quite effectively by threatening to come to my school and making an embarrassing scene.

absolutely not. Never.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 12/6/06 - 8:45:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that's almost as bad as torture!
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 1/14/07 - 10:23:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe, but it depends on the criminal and the crime.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 1/14/07 - 10:40:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Cruel and unusual punishment is unconstitutional.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 1/14/07 - 11:48:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it's cruel and unusual... and anyway, people with a better than average self-confidence wouldn't be phased by it in any serious way.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 1/16/07 - 12:43:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
no
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 1/26/07 - 11:46:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Stupid psychology...
Punishment is not an effective way to alter behavior since it often creates hostility towards the source, and it is rarely administered in an appropriate time frame. Example: You dog takes a dump on the floor, you find out and put your dogs head right next to it then lock it up. This won't teach the dog not to poo on the rug, it will teach it not to stick its face in its poo

Only when it's a very hineous crime and an example must be set.
15 yrs ago - Sunday 7/29/07 - 5:13:33 PM EST (GMT-5)

It would definately be effective.
I'm not sure about the "acceptable" part though.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 9/29/07 - 10:18:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Effective? Yes.
Acceptable? Not at all.
(I noticed alot of others posted this as well. But i thought of it as soon as i read the question)

If you've ever been publicly humiliated, I think you know what i mean.
