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.

I can understand people that type "facebook login" in the search box.
I can understand they click on the first result without reading just out of habit.
I can understand they are surprised to not find what they expected.
But I cannot understand that, instead of trying to understand what's happened, they actually waste time to look for the comment box and write complains.

It's like complaining with a brand of biscuits because your local wall-mart has moved your favorite biscuits in a different place.
