Why not apply the same logic to all infractions.

If you run a red light three times in your life, then you may not ever 
drive again.
If you leave your underwear on the floor three times, then you cannot wear 
clothes.

How exactly would you impose a "you cannot use the internet" restriction 
anyway?
I don't see it as a very likely outcome.
