I send you this link in order to have your advice

Since I’ve been ranting so much about e-mail viruses lately, I figured I’d link to this EWeek article I stumbled across via Google: Idiocy Imperils the Web.

Instead of a headline like “Dangerous Fizzer Worm Attacks the Internet,” how about “Thousands of Morons Open Obviously Virus-Laden E-mail Attachments”? I kind of like it. It has a light, comedic feel similar to headlines found at The Onion. But as Homer Simpson would say, it’s funny because it’s true. Stories like that should embolden smart users so that, instead of accepting their co-workers’ incompetence, they will feel free to mock and ridicule these Typhoid Marys of the computer world.

Of course, another columnist wrote a very similar rant, this one for Wired, over two years ago. Some things never change, do they?
