well said! that's the attitude we need these days instead "things
are going bad each day but we give up and tell anybody he don't
need to learn anything about security"

in the world we live anybody REALLY NEEDS basic knowledge about
computer security or he will pay it sooner or later with his money
and/or lost data, that get's proven every week multiple times and
pretend the opposite has only two possibilities:

* maliciousness (fun about see the noobs falling)
* ignorance

from the viewpoint of a user falling sooner or later because
it was told to him he does not need to know it's maliciousness
and i would compare it with telling a blind man "you can go sir
the traffic lights are green" while they are red
