You want opinions or facts? Opinions are much easier and lead to more
"spirited" discussions.

My opinion is you are 100% right - it is human fraility and there is
nothing you can do about them. Witness how many times Seth has had to say
"FAQ #......". People will get in a hurry, many are not professionals with
the scars to remind them to take care, some just do not have the
foundations yet laid to properly comprehend....

There is no solution AFAICT.
