This is an honest question. I'm wondering if the digital environment of todays day is becoming a larger replacement for courtship games that (males) once used on women, but are today using in the digital environment.


Why do you think that is the case?

The majority of people don't know how to hack, nor do the majority know anything about what hacking is which differs from the way 1990s movies portrayed it, the majority don't even know basic programming. Actual computer skills for good or ill are rare, which means those with malicious intent find themselves in an environment where relatively few people have any way of defending themselves. The problem here might be that school education in the subject they call "ICT"* is really just about using MS office and children are never taught any details or theory of computing, nor introduced to coding of any kind. The young may engage in courtship online but describing this as hacking makes no sense. They are merely doing what they did before the internet, just using a somewhat quicker and longer ranged communication method.

*that was the term when I was at school in the UK, and while the UK government likes to claim the curriculum has changed to promote teaching of programming, in reality no real change has occured except in the way that parts of the teaching are named on syllabuses
