Dunno about educating all those idiots, but for mitigating their idiocy I have a two-line AutoHotKey script (this is in Windows) called FakePaste mapped to ctrl-shift-alt-V. All it does is read from the clipboard and pretend to type those characters, one per 100ms if I recall correctly, or maybe I set it to 200ms. AHK can mimic keypresses at the system level, so it defeats whatever silly shit anyone tries to do in the browser. It's as if you were typing. If you're on Windows and willing to install AutoHotKey I can give you the script.
