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 kind of agree: It seems stupid to take the time and effort to login to another web site and post a comment about thinking that the site is just a new facebook theme. Some efforts has been put to do this, its not as if the user was puzzled and left his computer.

But then, we all do stupid things, and quite often even! When we see someone doing something stupid, we automatically associate the stupid action to the person. And when we see many stupid actions, it just reinforce that perception. But in the end, it's a small aspect of the person.
