True, which means that we have to use words that they *do* understand.

For extra coolness, a per-user firewall and some way of popping up a
query dialog when they violate a firewall rule.  "We detected you're
trying to access *, which is currently blocked due to your
privacy choices.  Would you like to enable access to * at
this time?"

Not that I expect such a tool to be practical, if even possible... ;-)
