Often, the security on these devices is beyond reach of most users. Hard to catch it happening, as well.

Can we encourage that?????

"Today boys and girls, we learn about Texas, and why being independent, belligerent, and unarmed is bad... Who here remembers the coast before China proved the Chicxulub impact to their senate?"

Well, of COURSE it will. Remember, Government is Grubberment; if you can't pay the politician more, you don't get the vote.

Cynical? Let's see. Class actions have been around a LONG while. The new rules protecting companies from class action litigation are not. Those rules are younger than I, and while a bit long in the tooth, I am not on my fifth decade yet.

How can this be? Money. The recipe is simple. Power Draws Money. Money Corrupts Power. Corrupted power with money corrupts State and federal representatives and congress persons. In toto, and short, Power corrupts, money+power corrupts absolutely. Sometimes, power alone corrupts. Any Questions? Look at the Congressional/Senate retirement package. Golden Parachute indeed.
