Re: Or who have the imagination to lie to them

There was a story some years ago about how women were less security conscious because more women were prepared to give a stranger in the street their password to something in return for some chocolate than were men.

Somewhere (I forget where but it may even have been on El Reg), I read a rejoinder to that, observing that it might just be that women are more intelligent than men and more likely to give a fake password to some idiot in the street offering them chocolate in return for unverifiable password details.
