Indeed. It's the security equivalent of "the market can stay irrational
longer than you can stay solvent" - perhaps we could reformulate that as
"the users can remain clueless longer than your business can survive the
DDOS"

How many times do you propose we FTDT before we get fed up and ask

migration?

There is no limit to what human beings can stand before becoming
reasonable. That is human nature and the engineers' rationality is no
match for it.

Think about religion, for instance. A lot of people still believe in a
supernatural being despite a very bad track record (much worse than
MS-Windows').
