Phoul told me today that some users get bridges from the new BridgeDB page, and then try to add them to a normal Tor Browser Bundle (that doesn't understand PTs).
This means that those users completely ignored 'Step 1: Get the Pluggable Transports Tor Browser Bundle'. Can we help those users out somehow?
We could force users to download the bundle by making BridgeDB a wizard that actually requires you to do step 1 before proceeding to step 2. I'm not sure if this is a good idea though. It might infuriate users who know what they are doing.
