The same people I mentioned the other day as not having enough clue to
do DNS correctly don't have enough clue to do BCP38 correctly either.
As one person mentioned, if stuff still requires pioneer-level skillsets
to use, the pioneers have more work to do.  The problem is that the
following wave seems to be made up mostly of chimpanzees, and nobody's
figured out how to make routers and network services that can be run
by chimps...

Maybe the new slogan needs to be "Save the Internet! Train the chimps!"
