      Careful what you joke about !!! :)

      "Sooner or later the entire WWW willl be too dangerous for normal users to use."

      It already is !!!

      The 'Normal' users just don't know yet & also don't know what to do instead !!!

      When your whole life is reflected in the myriad social media accounts you hold & there is no alternative to go to .... you just keep using them and hope all is O.K. !!!

      This is the reason there are more & more exploits / scams & general 'nasties' appearing each day, as the potential audience is more or less constant and does not go away ... even when they know it is unsafe out there !!!

      The only safe option is to 'nuke it all from orbit' ... just to be sure !!! :)
