It just happens to be true (it is even in the Old FAQ). So instead of
throwing up your hands, use it an opportunity to teach that person how to
make their machine more secure.
Other than the occasional user trying to bypass their company's security,
I don't think anyway has gotten turned away asking how to set up an
encrypted tunnel on this list.
