Waste our time you mean, crawl back under your rock.
Nobody is denying that Blizzard has taken steps to improve security and is continuing to do so. However, a considerable number of people are having their experiences ruined by account hacks and there's a lot more that can be done. The reality is that you don't get this with other games. My brother and I play TF2 - another game with inventory and trading systems - and our accounts have never been hacked, nor have we needed an authenticator.
That's because Valve has implemented two-stage authentication correctly and forces re-authentication when your IP changes. Steam accounts used to get hacked frequently and Valve recognized that asking your users to educate themselves on computers was a lost cause. Most people do not know nor care to know anything about their computer outside of how to use youporn and facebook. Blaming them is retarded and just loses money.
