The computer should only be for education, high morals, and bettering our humanity. Not for pornography and not for exploiting women.

Mostly spam, porn, and recipes it seems from the traffic.

The Internet is a communication tool used the world over where people can come together to bitch about movies and share pornography with one another.

Or, at least it was. Now it's mostly a mall and organ harvesting operation.

The Internet in just two words:

  • Cats & porn

The Internet in just one word:

  • Pussy

(not originally from me, but I like it)

As a dog person, I always begrudingly wished the dogs would have participated in some sort of memewar. The cats got all the "aww cute" memes, while dogs got all the "herpyderp" memes.

But I guess that's why I like dogs more than dictatory, selfimposed, greater-than-thou cats.

Okay, but what about cat mlems and one orange braincell? Or greebles, cats being scared by cucumbers, cat circles...

Videos and discussing things.

I read this too quickly as "videos and disgusting things", which still felt like a true statement.

As I understand it, the original impetus was to develop a communication system that was resilient in the case of a nuclear attack.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Now we just use it for sharing pictures of cats and boobs

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 weeks ago

It’s for everybody to use however they want.

Originally, to make the neurodivergent people of the world feel less alone. But then neurotypicals decided to monetise it and make it and use it for social engineering and data collection, so now we have nowhere again.

I remember the internet of the 90s before social media. It was really nice. Sure you had nasty stuff but you had to go looking for it. You spoke to people on niche forums and then added them to whatever messaging service you used. They new your name and you would occasionally send actual letters to each other or call each other on the phone. It was wholesome and good... This is not.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 weeks ago

Yes.

...it depends on whom you ask, I think. For me it's for info/data exchange, wasting time, contacting people, shitposting. Roughly in this order of relevance.

As with most things, musical theater has the answer.
