People tend to congregate with those like themselves; the same likes, dislikes, goals, morals, etc. So, the older folk you are referring to are probably people in your inner circle (of trust). Of course they do what's right. You do. There were some old guys in my neighborhood when I was growing up (now dead, I bet), who were the biggest jerks walking. I bet they wouldn't be your friend. There are assholes in every age class. In every race and religion. On every forum.
