You my friend are part of the problem in thinking it should be every man for himself and allowing those we pay to enforce the law set on their butt doing nothing. Law enforcement has become an agency to be weaponized against political foes instead of serving all citizens. Everyone whether old or young, illiterate or college educated is vulnerable to exploitation in some facets of life. I recall when (yes I've circled the sun many times) you would find yourself busting rocks if caught monkeying with U.S. Mail. IMO that should still be the policy. Do you believe it's excusable to cheat a yuppy on car repair simply because he is naive? Do you believe the largest and strongest deserve to cut in line since no one in line is capable of putting him in his place? Do you excuse exploitation of children too young to know the ropes or just old people? What cartel or gang that lives by running roughshod do you belong to?Same issue at my prior company, with several of the top executives having been born while FDR was still in office. Had one ransomeware virus take a $60M/year company down for more than 2 weeks, thanks to one of those dinosaurs blindly clicking on email attachments. Cost us somewhere in the $5M neighborhood in lost hours and equipment, by the time it was all said and done.
God bless you, if you're in your 70's and still have the gumption to work. But hire them a computer-literate secretary, so they can continue on what they know, don't put vulnerable technology into the hands of these people!
Reminds me of a comment made about the early nuclear arms race, leading up to the Cuban missile crisis, that the Generals and elected officials trying to navigate this new technology had grown up and fought their first wars on horseback!
