Re: At the very end
Reisen,

Part of the problem is condescending security snobs who ridicule users because those users don't know everything. If is not the salesperson's job to be a security geek. It is not the accountant's job to be a security geek. That same accountant could be sitting there thinking, "Wow, Reisen doesn't even know how to run a balance sheet with 3 year backwards depreciation - what an idiot. Impressed. Not." 

If you really are a security professional, part of YOUR job is to make "security life" easier for other people. If that means telling them something YOU think is "1st grade skills" but they may never have been exposed to, then perhaps you should suck it up buttercup and help educate the masses instead of being part of the problem.
