Now that I re-read you reply I see where we are not on the same
thought. I said "teach" not pick. Most users start out without
knowledge. If in my network I let them stay that way about safety on
the web I provide then its my fault. Today's user if careless usually
ends up without a usable computer. When I fix'em backup they are dumb
with what happen and soon are tired of it and wants to know how to
prevent it.

been great, thanks
