Pro tip: You can log into macOS High Sierra as root with no password


Macs are consumer devices. The vast majority of users/owners aren't going to even know what root access is, and nor should they need to.

"IT people" who look down on users who don't have a professional level of IT knowledge and roll their eyes at them whenever this type of things happen just reinforce the Moss stereotype. A total failure to understand and therefore accommodate the user's average expected level (or lack) of knowledge is also a reason so many issues occur in the first place.
