Does your Mom call you up every time she gets a dialog box complaining
about an invalid certificate ?
If she has been conditioned just to click "OK" when that happens, then
she probably can't.
Everyone I have observed clicks "ok" or "confirm exception" (if I
remember the phrase correctly) as soon as possible. Sadly I think only a
few security conscious (IT) people will actually think twice and reject
it if they don't trust it.
That to me proves this aspect ssl is somewhat flawed in that regard. But
then I am preaching to the choir. :-)
