Editorial Recently, a story about people mistaking a news story for the Facebook login page has received considerable media attention. It's currently being seen by many as justification for the recent trend in locking people out of their computers for their own protection - but anyone with even basic mathematical skills and a calculator should come to the conclusion that this story has been blown way out of proportion.

Thing is Google just shouldn't have moved dump news items to the top of the search results.

No, thing is the people should have read the results and only then clicked the correct one. That's how any sane person does it; they read stuff presented to them. The "It looks different but it's there so I won't bother checking it and will just instead click it and bitch if it's the wrong thing" - mentality is the issue here.
