Even though I know this to be true, whenever I encounter a form like
this on the web I just immediatly press 'back' unless I am specifically
looking for what I know is behind it. It is not for any particular
ideological reasons, it is just my default action and I think it is for
many other people too. In particular, I would immediatly just go to the
next tutorial on the list when presented with such a page. I can't
really defend it with any particular reasoning, I am just saying it how
it is.
