Sometimes I really, really hate been right. I've been talking for years about the frailty of the net - which was never designed with security in mind. People just don't realize that uploading a bazillion bytes of data to YouTube, blockchain, cypto-currency mining, and DOS attacks have consequences. It's like driving a car a car without brakes - as long as you're driving uphill, you're fine. All you need is one 15% grade to screw up your life.
