That's been my theory for years now. With anti-virus software being a lot better now than it used to be, and with the average user just knowing in general how not to be stupid in using the computer, there's just not a lot of concern anymore.

I've never had a real problem except once. Just after 9-11, I was debating a lot of Muslims, and coincidentally, I was unable to get into my control panel then. Maybe a virus, or maybe someone got into the system screwing around, or maybe just Windows being weird. But the time to be careful, at least for me, is during debates with people who do not like your positions.

I see the Pentagon just got compromised with a big worm in a big way. Apparently, it came from China. The Chinese have also been playing with the IMF and World Bank, and other major type institutions.
