    The site informs me that I should disable AdBlock to view the slide show. I wonder what message NoScript users see.

    For me the site is ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ up. Won't let me click through the slide show.

    I just so happen to use both AdBlock Plus and NoScript. I had no problems with disabling AdBlock Plus to view the slides, and I saw nothing from NoScript which I never disable.

    Overall, the slides were very informative. The major problem with being socially engineered out of important information is - how do you protect people from their own naivety? The answer may be to educate and inform them.
