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.

The clever thing to do would be to add sites you use often, such as the Facebook login, to your browser's Bookmarks/Favorites bar.

It's always The Right Thing for developers to design systems to handle so-called dumb users, but developers can only do so much before people's stupidity becomes overpowering.
