Re: Karl?

"...they used a combination of social engineering (aka tricking dumb people)"

Ignorance does not necessarily equate to intelligence. A cornucopia of "smart" people have been hornswoggled by social engineering too.

I'm still a big fan of your perspective.
I get where you're coming from jmn1207, but "smart" people can do dumb things too. Like a PhD philosopher putting tinfoil in the microwave. Or someone writing their password down on a Post-It note and sticking it to their monitor. Or using their username as their password. And so forth...

(Nice use of the word hornswoggle, btw. )
