Well, this is just the problem you get with users that doesn't do a
reality check before
following instructions.
I think most of the people on this list have either a clueless l33t
nitwit story or a
user executing things that are so amazingly obvious that the only
analogy in real life
would be "Please pick up that high voltage wire" the fact that they
don't do those
things in real life is that they have been trained to fear electricity.

Not having a clue is the reason we still have spam & phishing. Viruses,
worms trojans
and exploitation can happen without people helping but clueless people
really help them.

How many of us will confess to having been clueless a while back?
