If I listen to a moron and do what he says, thats my fault not his.
Is that strictly true IP SEC?
I see where you're coming from but the young, inexperienced and genuinely 'hudwinked' can't really be attributed as much fault as you might be suggesting.
Unfortunately some total shitheads are very good at taking a ride on other people's backs.
The older we get, the more wily and cynical we become.
Only with knowledge can we have the equipment to deal with morons and imposters.
If we have the knowledge and still fall prey, then we can attribute full fault to ourselves.
Just a thought.
