The forth most important rule to becoming a security professional,

kids hi-jack your e-mail account with the next cross-site scripting

You forgot the most important rule of all.  Pay no heed to bozos who post 
anonymously and don't even have a job in security.  Their advice is 
usually worth just as much as their reputation.
