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.

Perhaps they should also have an empathy test...There are always different means of categorizing people, and then condemning them. They call people who cannot get used to computers non-geeks, but those with an affective disorder are potentially sociopaths. I know which I would prefer to invite for dinner.

I also suggest a sense of proportion.
