To which the obvious retort is "You guys, always with the passwords, and the clickjacks, and the spoofs, and the phish" :-)

Ah! Here's the solution: require all users to plug in their RealID cards. Yeah, that'll fix us for good. And forever. Will the RealID have some storage where we could stash some bookmarks? After all, that is a device which, by law, we will never be allowed to be without. Complaints about, "but what if I don't have it with me?" will no longer apply. Totally invasive government to the rescue!
