To be fair its not like you can randomly expect me to trust bitcoin instantly even if I do know a bit about computers, simply because its so complex. I don't find fault with the guy's IT department. However, to then indicate that they are some sort of an uber-good source that proves that BTC is broken or something is retarded.
Not sure if you meant "you personally", but it's really not that complex.  See my sig.

No I meant in general. Of course, I, now, believe BTC. However I didn't the moment I came to know of it, and if my boss had come up to me and said "hey here is this thing called bitcoin, tomorrow tell me what you think of it" I probably would have responded with something along the lines of "I'm not really sure about it, it looks complicated."

I hear that a lot: "I'm not sure if I can trust this..."

And that's the neat thing, it doesn't require trust.  The whole point of it is that it's a zero-trust system.  Science and math work, without regard to your level of trust.

I agree completely. I'm just saying that you can't expect people to understand that (what even a decentralized currency IS) instantly.

You can take a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a bull's ass, but wouldn't you rather take the butcher's word for it?

sorry, this just came to my mind... (and Tommy Boy)

I have some respect for Pento, but wow.  Does he take investing advice from his IT team?  The probably read a couple of entries on the wiki and thought they understood the whole BTC world.
