Lurking around the Microsoft blogs this morning and spotted this:
Microsoft is changing how they alert Bing users to sites infected with malware[i]. We’ve become used to the mysterious, generic messages declaring a site unsafe and warning not to go further. This wasn’t much of an incentive to some and people still clicked through the message. I’ve dealt with customers who ignored the warning and I kind of understood. That doesn't mean I wasn’t frustrated by their act and didn’t bill them, it’s just that computer users have become immune to many of the cryptic warnings that get tossed up on their screen. I think of it as “computer comatositis”.
