    Lightbulb The internet: A GOOD or Evil source of communication???

    Welcome all,
    I am currently writing my first novel (very excited) and researching misuse of the internet. What are the worst experiences you (people you know or have heard of) have endured via the net.
    Hackers, cyber bullying, identity theft, exposure, slander. . . the list goes on. All ideas welcome and possibly included in a best seller (I wish) LOL. :

    Well, I was thinking of doing the same so if I tell you what I know that would mean my "best seller" would be inferior to yours, so I'm not sure.........I must say though, you have come to the right place for your research, as regards the topic I'd say the evil outweighs the good..unfortunately...

    What do I hate on the internet?

    Mere unkindness and ...the spelling of some of the younger chatters.

    That is all.

    Moved to Homework Help as its not a debate you are asking for people to relay their experiences to you.

    [email protected] very funny and very true

    It's hardly homework help if you don't mind Hudson!
    I like it here thank you very much. One of the running themes is about the internet being good/evil.
    There is nothing wrong in asking people to talk about personal experience if they are willing to do so. Please do not hijack this thread as I had enough negative experience in the Gay forum thank you.

    I agree with you. I have never had homework like your question yet, obviously it must depend on the type of school you attend.

    I know there are some real idiots in the gay chat forum. I simply went there for some inspiration and they were horrid but I gave them what for, good style lol
    They seem to think it's the crime of the century to want to know about people's personal opinions and experiences! That's partly what forums are about lol but there forunm is just boring, mundane stuff silly chit chat about nothing and when someone posts something interesting they can't bare it. I just want to go to any measure to make this the best novel I can possibly create. There is nothing wrong with a little research is there? as long as it hurts no one. People may want to be included in this

    Kizmet. If you actually bothered to do some searching throughout the gay forums and maybe read some of the older threads, you may find what you want without all this "attacking" from members such as Who.

    And it also might help your cause if you didn't bang on about your novel and how nice you wanna be. Be a real lesbian, grow some balls.

    The internet can be good or evil... Some people use it to stalk others or be annoying or it can be good like if they just go on to watch a video

    Woah, cyber dangers, man theres alot of those!
    Heres a big list

    Scams: --> Definition: To claim to be someone or offer a certain good/ service in exchange for something, yet not giving it.
    --> Worst case scenario I've heard of with this one, is that an old lady got her entire life savings all stolen out of her bank due to scams. She was sitting at her computer, watching her money go down, helplessly. She's going to court, and trying to get her money back.

    Hackers: --> Definition: To gain access to someones personal information without their consent.
    --> Difficult for hackers to gain access to your computer though. One of the main way they do it is through keyloggers.

    You can't really consider the internet bad or good, because it's both. There are viruses, bad people, dumb people, etc. But there are good things to because if you didn't have internet you wouldn't be sitting down asking the question you just did. If that makes since at all.

    It's definitely both bad and good, bad of course you meet problems and people who can't be polite. The good is that success in a lot of searches.

    id say its good. Because just how some ppl treat "credit cards" as "evil" and think they only make u go in more debt. its wrong. Everything has dangers, but a wise person uses EVERYTHING to his advantage.
