But unfortunately, problems don't hurt its creators / supporters too much in order to be taken seriously.

From creators point of view per definition true otherwise they wouldn't create.

From the end users point of view nonsense, if your PC is infested with malignent activity so too speak and tries to infect other peoples PC's on the subnet the chance is great your internet connection is (temporarily ) cut off. That must make you as user more aware.

You don't want to know how many customers we had to shut off due to spamming. I know this because i used to work for a big ISP.

This is due to the shrinking difference between user and administrator which causes means of security to be abandoned step by step in order to increase individual feelings of comfort and safeness.

I'm curious to know where specific ( an example?) the difference between the user and admin is schrinking?

security to be abandoned step by step in order to increase individual feelings of comfort and safeness.

Tell me who is 100% safe on the internet.
Hundred percent secure is an utopia. Security is a process with a awfull lot of facets. Even the most talented security practitioners can become the victim themselves. Thereis little you can do against a 0day and at the same time maintain a satisfiable amount of usability.

Anxiety is good for the sales figures.
About time vapourware is been brought more into the spotlight. Especially to expose the good,the bad and the ugly amongst security tools,practices,procedures.
