I saw a note in a current trade magazine (Information Week?) that showed 92 
people clicked on a clearly marked pop-up that *promised* to infect an 
otherwise uninfected PC with a virus.

The sheeple apparently didn't read the text in the pop-up, or didn't 
understand it if they did...

I can find the attribution, if interested.
