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.

Tom, so you don't believe that education is the key? I think people need to have a basic understanding of computers and the Internet. It's second nature to us because we use it all the time, but there are many people that don't understand it and it is indeed a magic box.

Basic Internet Usage classes would do the world of difference, imo.
