It's negligent if you just plug something in with no idea of what will happen or what the risks are.
I think this is an unreasonable stance. You have to be made aware that there are risks and most people are simply not aware of wither the risks or the extent of these risks. The vendor is not going to stress the risks as that does not help to move product.
The only time risks are pointed out by vendors is when physical safety is concerned and even that does not always happen. The salesman won't offer you a lesson on the dangers of using a microwave oven will he? The Internet is awash with risks and we supported the systems that promoted and created them. Thats life folks.
