Is the internet a good thing or a bad thing?
(other than supplying a life for most corsasport users)

Personally i think its a good thing, because it offers a huge range of sources for coursework/college work, i feel isolated without the internet and have become very dependant upon it. Without the internet my work would be of a lower standard.
Large amounts of my boredom are solved by the internet with MSN or here or browsing other sites.

In my opinon it is a good thing

What do you think?

Wasn't this question used in a recent AOL billboard advertising campaign?

Anyway, yes it is, because I can retrieve free pornography/music/software/games to my heart's content.

I think the only problem with it is when you need to get away and revise hard

There is too much of a distraction and i always end up on some internet related thing

The internet has turned the majority of people into mindless fuckwits, and internet warriors.

Porn is cool though...

Me.

although I could vote good or bad.

Good in terms of info, my business website is doing very well etc.

Bad in terms that in my trade we get a lot of bedroom traders selling for cheap as they have no overheads to contend with to we have to compete with their prices (which isnt a problem just it means I make less profit) and also we get a lot of wasters with shit they bought of Ebay because it was cheap but when they get it it doesnt work.........their problem though

Its good IMO as I order from a lot of my suppliers using their B2B sites, I have my business website which is doing well and making some alright money. I also use it for work to get information on products, reviews etc......

So IMO I think its good.

I agree with this guy.

DR11 is wrong in his opinions though.
