    What do you think about the  morality, ethics and criminality changes of the Web in the last 15 y?

    I believe that some years ago  Internet was more personal,  honest and real. Today around every cybercorner you find besides the honest and decent people more and more scammers cheaters and criminals

    I think it's just evolution at work. When the internet first became available to the public, the criminal aspects were unknown and undiscovered. As time has passed people with ill intentions have figured out how to cheat/scam/steal all sorts of things online. The internet has even made it easier for criminals to get information they need to commit "real life" crimes. Don't know how to make methamphetamine? You can find out how on the internet. Want to find out when some guy down the street is out of his home so you can break in? Check his Facebook for an update about him leaving. Want to sell someone a car you don't have? Pick a random location and offer to ship the "car" after payment is made. A lot of times people could keep themselves from be victims by using a little common sense.

    I agree with you 100% Cobrafan.
    The sad thing is that though internet was going to connect the world now
    because you do not know who is on the other side of the "cyber line" you can not
    be open.
    By the way your articles about mild energy sources are quite interesting

    I think that the web has gone the same road that television and game systems that youth and young adults often participate in. The road to perdition. There is no real official monitoring of what our children are subjected to and that is publicly posted for all to see regardless of their age. There should be some officiating and more appropriate policing of the media and all of its complex elements. Also more parental control should be exercised..The so-called over seeing by officials in the states and by federal means are really not doing the right job and letting a lot of people down. Rights may seem to come into question as to government policies, yet, should we not have some control of the wild animal that the web and other media promoted facilities have become.perdition
