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.

The real "story", if you will, is what are we to do with these poor folks.


We should do nothing.
These morons are represents a very small part of the worlds computer users and there's really nothing we can do to help them. Either they get their shit together and start thinking or, well, they'll continue being stupid. This is a very small sample and we really shouldnt be paying any attention to it.

Agreed.

Stupidity is part of life. Heck, we here might be smart at computers, but I can assure you, each of us is stupid in any number of other fields.

Like, girls, for instance. *cough*

Right, but there's a difference between being stupid at something and behaving stupidly about it.
