Then we aren't doing our educational job correctly.

In part, that's my fault, because I dropped the ball on 


So let me pick the ball back up: would everyone who has asserted in this
thread that BCP38 is the New Hawtness from 20 years ago, please take 30
minutes out of your weekend, and go find a place 'pon that wiki that
you can usefully apply a Vulcan Nerve Pinch to make it more suitable for
us to wave in front of the faces of the people about whom Scott is 
concerned here?

I have just rewritten the front page a bit, in recognition of the fact
that as it was, it did not really address that audience itself, but more 
detail work on the interior about who should enable BCP38 filtering,
how they can do it, and why they don't -- and why those reasons are
spurious -- would be very helpful.
