"Authenticators can only do so much if you are completely careless otherwise"And this is what many of us here said when the "omg I gotta get an Authenticator right now!!!!" craze kicked off a couple months ago.We simply said, if your careless(aka stupid), then your account will still be hacked. Simply put, technology is no substitute for common sense.The reaction? Flaming, down voting, stupid Mac vs. PC arguements, and even more stupid MADE UP stories about about how people took every precaution, but some hacker still got them by "hacking his buddies wife's account, pretending to be her when his buddy logged on, and tricking him into giving her full guild bank access"......seriously, I still can't believe that someone expected us to believe that story....anyway...The bottom line is, there were two sides to this. People who said authenticators are great and would protect us all and those who said authenticators are useful as another security measure, but not the end all.I guess we have a winner to that debate from the article a couple months back...
