    Re: Is the cyberworld really beneficial?

    the internet is one... television... movies... blackberries (the phone thing AND the fruit XD)... TEXT MESSAGING... the phone... i think it's all a government concpiracy to maniupluate our minds into something really cool sounding... but you know...
    The internet is for porn... there's no real way to refute that... i mean, what do you think people do AFTER they're done posting? send an e-card? i don't think so...
    Now now don't get ahead of yourself u must remember all the things u have mentioned are things off choice to use or not to use so in the end of the day even if someone is plotting something u choose to go with it or not.....
    Like i said all things in life has + and - points it all depends what u use it for...example --- > money is the root of all evils --- but everybody has money or work for a salary now is everybody evil no ways it all depends what u do with yours.
    There is always a way to refute anything anybody says unless it is the truth and what u saying is speculation......

    However, as far as online gaming goes, my brothers are addicted to Counter Strike Sourse and play it everyday when my little brother gets home from school.
    LOL this CS Source is my favorite game aswell but i cannot play overseas the connection has to much lag = latency problems so i am not sure when i will be able i know that some of the overseas ppl can play on SA servers but we cant play overseas ....



    lol......

    I mostly use the internet for game research/importing/discussion. The Internets are awesome >_>

    I mean, without the internet, I wouldn't know about tons of great games and such.

    Of course it is! The cyberworld is very benificial. We gain alot of information from it. Its a way to communication. There is alot of problems with the internet but there is also some very useful things! Like mapquest ebay ect... The internet it another impostant tool that we have. Although sometimes this tool can be taken advantage of, But fot the most part it is a value to us.

    However, as far as online gaming goes, my brothers are addicted to Counter Strike Sourse and play it everyday when my little brother gets home from school. To me this is a weird thing because they can play games offline and still have fun its just when they are on the internet, their rage levels are increased because perhaps the discrimate against other players from different countries. I know that they don't do it all the time so its so bad but they still get raged when the get killed and start having a screaming session at the monitor hehe.

    Although if it wasn't for the internet there would so many things we would not have been able to do. Like have more access to information about certain topics, find cheaper prices for things one is wishing to buy, Communicate with friends more easily and with other family members who in a different place, and lastly to perhaps find someone they can get close to. Because the internet is has become a populated sourse of nearly everything. Its seems that you can now do anything online from Shopping to watching someone walk in a high street on CCTV cameras.
    Aha! Thank you very much Dancy...... another negative point in internet is the online gaming addiction XD

    Now, all the members seem keen on keeping the net while being completely aware of the harm it causes. It seems a lot like playing with a loaded gun o_O

    I have a external hdd and all my info files and stuff is on their the other stuff on my computer is mail adresses and small,uninformational for them. lol
    Learn to protect yourself and your DATA and u will have more fun on the net.. get a firewall aswell i can recommend one firewall but i see they discontinued it.
    So yeah mine still works 100%.
    I will have to check for a new one when that one does not work anymore....
    Haha, not all of us are well equipped with the knowledge and technology of these things as you Spymonk.. It is definitely amazing how the hackers can sneak through the use of the net, and certain death awaits a person targeted by such a person.

    Basically, the internet is promoting murder for the hacker while he is at the comfort of his own beanbag!! XD This is insane!

    teh internets? Good? lololololololololololol


    The 'net stopped being good a LONG time ago, like before I even had one probably. It was the information superhighway, and it still is, but originally, that's all it was used for. The internet is for porn as the saying goes, now that almost anyone these days can get a computer and use it, the internet can be used to destroy and pollute the mind. Sure it has it's perks, but do honestly think it's benefitting you? Let me ask all of you non-college students: What do you do on the internet mostly? Scroll forums? Play games? Or look up research information? I doubt that last one was your top choice. But in the end, just because the internet is not exactly the best thing to ever happen, it's not stopping any of us from logging on everyday (or so.) I've seen nasty nasty things on the 'net, but that hasn't discouraged me to stop using it. We are all slaves to it...or so it seems at times.

    Re: Is the cyberworld really beneficial?

    I think whether or not the internet is a good or bad thing is a really, really hard question to answer. It's as common as the telephone. Honestly, if someone tells you they don't have internet access, don't you look at them as though they had two heads?

    But, as a whole, I would argue that the internet is a good thing. The internet has made a wealth of information available to literally billions of people. Sure, there is pornography, predators, and the like, but to those ends I say this:

    The fields of monitoring and policing the internet have come a long way and continue to do so. Also, I remember when my family first got the internet (yes, I am old enough to remember a time before the internet). I was a young teenager, probably around thirteen or so. We got our first copy of AOL, and I remember hearing that dial tone, and BAM! Porno all over the place! You know what my motivator was to stay away from predators and pornography? MY PARENTS ENFORCED RULES.

    I think that the arguments for the negatives are a result of poor parenting, plain and simple. People argue that parents can't monitor their kids 24/7, blah blah blah... My parents managed to fairly easily, and I grew up a better person for it. So, indeed, the internet roxors my soxors.

    it's all up to everyone actually. the risk of being robbed, lied and stuff like that do happen but if u take care in particular stuff like for instance our personal info and all we could easily avoid falling into such traps. on the other hand, internet is a really gd place to find and explore stuff such as research, and so on since it's limitless....using it for good reasons shud be why internet was created but we can't prevent those bad ppl frm doing bad now can we? like i said earlier, it's a matter of opinion...if u think that u R doing the neccessary prevention frm bad things, WHY NOT? after all- what's life without risks?

    i think the cyber world
    benifites everyone in some way
    even though some dont see it
    i mean with out the cyber world
    paying bills or getting movies ticktes
    and even making vacations trips would
    take longer
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
    I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
    They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
    Isolate and save you from yourself
