Sorry, but many lost their retirement funds today, their kids university money, their house deposits. Crypto is for the stupid and the hackers, not the general person.

I waited for almost 2 years before the trend turns and now everything is gone. There should be an API where you could report on stolen bitcoin. Merchants and exchange could use this api to discard transactions originating from stolen funds. This is however, not something electrum should develop.
But what about other electronic wallets? Today I noticed that all of the Bittrex foreign exchange was gone. Is it possible for them to steal these, too? I have already sent a question to Bittrex but so far no answer. With great delay, I learned about the theft of 16 bitcoins!!!
