But does it stop the NEXT guy from doping?  the young guys coming through - do THEY look at what happens if you get caught and think about whether or not to dope?

Honestly the getting caught part is not worse than having to live a lie etc. I think that the way former dopers talk about their time doping helps in painting the image that it is impossible to get away with forever and people that dope generally feel terrible about their life.

Why is it that doping is acceptable by everyone ... but say ... putting a battery in the bike, or disabling someone elses bike ... is not?   

The public (and other riders) reactions to other kinds of cheating make it much less acceptable.  The reactions to doping are that 'its ok' - its not considered cheating.

Because people are caught all the time, or seem to be (partly because of the press release) If someone test positive my reaction would not be "This is an outrage" it would be more like "oh well..." because we have seen it so many times before.

Much like how crossing a red light on foot is acceptable but in a car it is a no go.
