"With all the clever people in this world, I'm surprised it's taking this long."

Modern humans have been around for something like 100,000 years*, and we have yet to come up with a way of avoiding fools. The fact that computers are involved in this case doesn't change anything. No amount of clever people can stop fools being fools, and as long as a system allows humans to be involved in it those fools will find a way to be foolish.

*Slightly off topic, but estimates vary from around 50,000 to 300,000 years, and there's plenty of evidence of a decent level of intelligence existing long before that, presumably with fools to go along with it.
