Re: Apple tried to warn you, several times

"Perhaps Apple users are lulled into a false sense of security, so they ignore all these warnings."

Or perhaps they quite rightly hold the view that it's their PC and they'll install whatever software they damn well want without asking mother for approval first. That used to be how all PCs worked, whether they had Apple, MS, Linux, or any other OS running. It's bad enough that people so often roll over and allow their phones to be locked away in a walled garden, but doing it for desktop PCs as well is just nuts.

The problem here is not that people might have jumped through the multiple hoops required just to have some control over their own property, it's that having done so, they were stupid enough to install something making claims about pretend money. If you choose to install obvious malware, it's entirely your own fault when it turns out to be malware.
