There is no lack of tools for administrating a server. However, the
present tools demand a minimum understanding of networks, including
security. Developing tools which do not demand any prerequisite
knowledge will lead to unknowledgable people performing dangerous
activities with their servers. They may be putting their data, or
their customers' and associates' data at risk.

How would you feel if you discovered that the mom 'n pop auto parts
store that you order online from and delivers directly to your garage,
was storing your email address in a publically-accessible page,
indexed by google? Now, imagine that it is you credit card information
in addition to your email address. Why wouldn't they do that, it makes
it easier for the different workers to find the info, even from their
cellphones while on the road, right?
