But certainly we have to protect kids, no? What you are saying here doesn?t seem to jive at all with the real dangers of the internet. How about the addiction aspect alone? Lol, not ours, we don?t count because we were fortunate enough that our formative years didn?t have the internet in them. But today, this is a huge and serious issue for students. And then of course, the fraud and porn and other more serious elements.
People aren?t against the fantasy internet you speak of, but that isn?t how people are using the internet.
