While a firewall is indeed a necessary step in protecting yourself, if you don't research the traffic you aren't using it efficiently. How many of you research the firewall logs? What's the percentage of users who do? Who really knows what kind of traffic is coming in/going out of their computer?

This is what I was thinking. I've got a hunch that most people who install a personal firewall don't do any of this and can't interpret network traffic, completely negating the effectiveness.
