    Being mightily cheesed off with bullshit media stories about the evils of the internet (well I would say that, wouldn't I?) it's nice to find a positive story.

    No doubt this sort of thing is happening elsewhere in the world but it's still a positive read.

    People will always find things wrong when a new form of communication arises, mostly because they refuse to take the fault of bad parenting or poor life choices. Radio even had that problem when it first became popular.

    The internet has opened us up to communications possibilities that had been thought of as sci-fi for the longest time, and now we are living it. It's the best tool we have had available since the invention of the wheel.

    The critics of technology will always be with us. No doubt when someone invented fire-making in the background there was a clucker whining about burns :lol:

    The internet reflects the society which spawns it.

    It is as good or as bad as they players who create it and who haunt it.

    boo!

    I am thankful for the internet, because without it I would have never met my fiancee. I've told this story before, but I just got hooked up to the internet at my home in June 2006, met my fiancee on a message board (believe it or not!) in July 2006...been together ever since! There is NO WAY we would have ever met without it, just saying.................:cool:
