I'm sure 100% of the complainers are older people. There is no doubt that, as we get older, everything gets harder to do. While many of us realize that continuing to exercise our bodies and our minds will help us stay in healthy and stay active, it is quite clear that there are also many of us who just give up and allow our minds and bodies to deteriorate with age.
Younger people do not have these problems, so of course, it is only going to be older people who you will see whining and complaining about how hard it is to learn anything new.
The only point I was really trying to make in my first response to you was that not all of us baby boomers have let ourselves go. And, in fact, even some of our parents still keep moving forward, in spite of being old.
I also see that you got my other point about people spending their entire days on these forums, rather than spending a few hours here and there actually doing something productive with their time. As I've said elsewhere, I think this creates a situation in these forums, where people who don't like to learn new things are over-represented, because they can afford to spend their entire days posting comments about how hard it is to learn anything new. On the other hand, those of us who are still able to learn are more inclined to spend our days learning and doing new things, and thus don't have that kind of time to spend in these forums. This creates that impression that the world is full of old-farts who can't learn anything new and can't handle any change in their daily routine, when in fact, many of us older people can, and do learn new things and do handle changes in our daily routines.
