That reads more like a person who is customer centric with an acceptable idea...

Yep. Giving insecure PC's the power to change firewall settings. Doesn't
sound like the cleverest idea.
I have a firewall, my computer can't be a zombie. Yes, I click on every
attachment I see and install every program any random web site offers me,
but I have a firewall so my computer can't be a zombie :-(
But it does demostrate that people really, really want to run their
applications no matter how we try to stop them. Instead of blocking
people from running their applications, can we figure out better ways
for them to run them safely?
