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 agree, she is above average on the bell curve. I don't think computers need to be easier, I believe users need more education. I wouldn't want legislation of this, but we don't really let drivers on the road without some form of education, practice ,etc.

I don't think it should be a requirement. The Internet and computers are a tool in everyday life and should be available to everybody...but as proponents of technology, we should also encourage our ignorant loved ones and friends to get some form of education.
