  • A license to operate a computer?

    Australian Crime expert backs calls for 'licence to compute'
    http://www.itnews.com.au/News/154129...o-compute.aspx

    Australia's leading criminologist thinks online scams have escalated to such a point that first-time users of computers should have to earn a licence to surf the web.

    Russel Smith, principal criminologist at the Australian Institute of Criminology said the concept of a "computer drivers licence" should be taken seriously as an option for combating internet-related crime.
    I admin mail servers and have to deal with all the spam arising from clueless newbs, and I think this is a dumb idea. It effectively blames the victim. This is tantamount to requiring a license to be in public, where any street scam artist can defraud you, because you're unqualified to spot the scam.
    Dude, seriously, WHAT handkerchief?
