Sigh Hate that I always have to say this, but it’s best to start by not marginalizing non-privacy focused people by calling them normies. It’s a gatekeeping attitude and it turns off anyone who was considering privacy.

Edit: Inclusivity is the fastest/most effective way to build a community

Not wrong, but there needs to be a defining line where one is knowledgeable and an authority on the subject, and one who is not. Gatekeeping can be a really trashy attitude, which is a reason I focus so much on smartphone guide because it covers the one massive problem in the life of almost every tech user. Also, threat modelling is something I strive to make easy, and I openly welcome people who want to take advice from me. I help people and I like to help people.

Yes, and that’s the way to do it! But you would lose all credibility in your guide if you started it by referring to the reader as a normie, I reckon.

I never refer to them as normies. I have a better name that does not offend anyone – privacy seekers. Sometimes I may phrase them as ordinary people that are less tech savvy.

I think most people understand that some things need to be secret aka private, like their passwords. I wonder if there are any old folktales about gossip in towns and villages that would be fun to rewrite for now. I named the open source community !magicstone based on one of those old stories and I think it helps get the idea across of building something great through community.
