You know, I haven't used IE for years. And I've written software that managed hashed-password-protected accounts. So none of this is really news to me (except the expensive idea that account details are kept in the same secure db as billing information-- the LOLz!). But I still think there could be a little less of this blame-the-victim attitude. I understand how frustrating ignorance can be, but your MythBusters style to remedying it is just as frustrating because the people who most need to know this information are going to be put on the defensive by your approach. As a result, they won't read or retain the information.Try presenting the bad guys as bad guys, rather than as a divine force of nature punishing idiots, and you might see a more positive and productive a response.
