Except you are doing nothing to help people either identify or overcome their weaknesses before they are harmed.

I digress. I think s/he does, simply by rasing the question. Doing so gives *other* peoples ideas for actions. I do *not* think s/he needs to actually do anything him/herself in this issue (except for writing replies here at /.).

Also, there are other important things to spend your time on, in addition to reducing-ignorance. Perhaps s/he is spending his/her time doing something *you* would consider a lot more meaningful than preventing-people-from-being-scam-victims-by-ignorance? There are genocides and war and other things you could try to put an end to, and you don't have all time in the world.

In the unlikely event that you are already doing something to actually proactively help people, I offer a preemptive apology.

I think s/he (i.e. causality (777677)) *does* do something, by writing what s/he has written. --- I got some ideas to attempt to help people becoming less ignorant, by reading his/her texts.

(May I ask, Anonymous Coward, are you a scam victim, or is e.g. your spouse a scam victim? You seem otherwise unreasonably upset, from my current point of view.)
