My experience has been from te early 80s I thought encrypted communications 
would grow to a
world wide phenomena - but I was a bit optimistic. Top security professional in 
my opinion
don't tell people to encrypt which is there best form of security.

It seems to me there are two or three types that use encryption

(1) those that actually need it
(2) computer nerds who think it's some holy grail
(3) ordinary people trying to get more ordinary people to see sense

I posted your little bit of advice to a Linux group on FB - the reaction was 
not as I
expected - condescending replies in the main - none of whom and the 
intelligence to see the
implications - I felt I was defending what was a good idea.

Today with increased surveillance from security forces reading everything we do 
you would
have thought that those involved in politics would at least use encryption - 
they have no
idea what one is talking about. Thirty odd years have past - and still 90 per 
cent of the
population who use computers and smart phones have no idea. Well 99.9 per cent 

I seem to hanging on to a vital bit of technology - and every one I know is 
still throwing
flint spears at Hairy Mammoths :)

Rant over - I shall go back to silent observation :)
