I agree it is absurd.  We shouldn't wait until they are in college, we
should start teaching these things to middle and high school students.
(Which by the way I am.)  Everyone complains about the incompetent home
computer user - not using firewalls, anti-virus, installing patches and
service packs.  Well, it is because they don't know or understand these
things and why they are important.  

I am teaching a class to 7 thru 12 grade and do seminars for adults.  Most
of the people that have taken my seminars have been amazed.  They had no
idea how many things on the Internet they need to be concerned about.  Until
they are told that these things are important and why, we are going to
continue to have issues directly related to them. 

I for one think that instead of complaining we should help educate.
