This is obviously a "great truth" - a statement whose opposite is also true.

In my last post when I said this:
If something's deemed 'critical' to a large segment of the population, then
security must NEVER outweigh conveinience. Period. Non-negotiable.
I meant to say that security must ALWAYS outweigh convienience.

My goof....guess I had too much NOG and not enough NAN at the party last
night. :)
A case could be made that you had it right the first time, in that a "large
segment" of the population cares less about security than they do about dancing
hamsters, and that they'd designate the latter as "critical". Thus the sorry
state of certain end-user software on 90% of the desktops.

Happy Holidays! ;)
