In the wake of the collapse of a huge Ponzi scheme, here's a reasonable thought: "If your excuse for getting defrauded out of all your money by not observing any of these rules is that a lot of other smart people fell for the same thing, consider the fact that these other smart people are actually not that smart. If your excuse is that you knew something fishy was going on and hoped to benefit from it, you probably shouldn't be allowed around money ever again."
