They have an IT staff member and a Law consultant, no reason this could not have been fixed.

By all means, continue virtue signalling
Theres a big difference to working in the city vs working in the wild. As for their IT consultant, whats your point?
Having myself set (before using gpedit) windows update to not update automatically multiple times, windows went and reset itself to auto updates, but this also means I need to manually update windows defender and any other security updates that get released for windows. So, as an "makeshift" IT consultant, you're left with a choice:
- Fully turn off windows updates, trust your users and hope nothing goes wrong
- leave them on and receive updates to keep you system secure.
The guy is a pilot first and IT by requirement. Outside of seemingly not being a qualified IT consultant, the second paragraph i quoted would have been outside of his control. That X is no different to the fake flashing Download button on file hosting sites.
according to Brian, the Chinko Project’s part-time pilot and makeshift IT expert
Sharing a screen shot of Microsoft’s alert on upgrading to Windows 10, Brian noted that only the vigilant and tech-savvy will know to click on the tiny “here” button to cancel the upgrade. “Most will click the X [to exit out of the alert], and local villagers trained to use the software on these PCs have no clue,” he says.
As for virtue signalling..
How cute, seems you've learned a new phrase recently without actual knowing what it means and rather than look it up, you got trigger happy and thought you had a legit reason to use it.
The issue is that MS is forcing people who dont know any better to upgrade. When you have people using pc's who arent IT specialists, the only time someone should have to be careful when using their/a pc, is with dodgy websites and links. The fact that MS are using the tact they have been goes to show just how little they care for the end user.
But hey, keep shilling for that MS if that helps you sleep.Edited by LoLomgbbq - 6/8/16 at 12:58am
