The world's largest network of computers. The Internet used to be a very valuable source of information; but is now full of scammers, advertisements, harmful software, idiots, trolls, domain squatters, advertisements, pornography and a lack of coherent sentences.

There are a set of rules of being on the Internet, follow them and you'll be fine. If you don't, you're going to hate the Internet. The two most important rules are:

1. Don't make yourself look like an idiot, it leaves you open to flames.

2. Don't trust ANYONE, whether it has to do with giving someone your Hotmail password or your credit card number. You can't really trust a stranger, can you?
Josh posted a thread on a forum he often visits about how much he thinks Halo sucks. After seeing the post, several members flamed Josh and he was eventually banned for posting threads about those members. Josh became angry and decided to edit/add Wikipedia articles about the members and the forums and his IP address was subsequently banned from Wikipedia. After seeing the articles about them, the members in question distributed Josh's e-mail address through the forums, instructing all the users to send him hate e-mails for being an asshole. Josh's e-mail inbox was flooded with hate e-mails and spam and Josh suffered a panic attack and later terminated his Internet account.

Moral of the story: No one cares if you hate something or like one thing more than another, so shut up.

An excellent creation, where you can get pretty much any information you need at the click of a mouse. But most sites (like MySpace and GameFAQs) are overrun by dumbasses, whiners, fanboys and complete assholes who will never get a life if it could save the world.
Social conversations on the internet look a bit like this:

n00b: shut up lol u r gay
Emo: omg wtf i hate you now im gonna cut myself lol

Sensible gamer: I believe the Wii will be better than the PS3 because I feel like playing in a different way this gen.
Fanboy: U FANBOY, EVRY1 NOWS PS3 IZ BETTA DAN DA WII LOL

Originally an information sharing virtual community. However, now it is simply a haven for people who think they are entitled to spreading their stupidity, and also people who abuse the anonymous nature of the internet to act like a prat. The worst thing to ever happen to humanity.
Unfortunatley I am not lame enough to invent an example of the rampart stupidity available on the internet, just trust me on this one.

1.) Designed to be an indestructable communications medium, in the event of a worldwide catastrophe. The only real worldwide catastrophe to happen so far is the Internet itself.

2.) Part of the "information superhighway" intiative. Let's see what happens in another 50 years.
Make sure your online service also includes internet access.

"The Internet is a place where absolutely nothing happens."
Strong Bad.
Person 1: What's the matter, you look angsty.
Person 2: A WORM WAS UNLEASHED THAT DELETED ALL THE PORN ON THE INTERNET ENTIRELY!
Person 1: So, nothing as usual.

A total web of confusion, dismay, and pornography.
I searched the internet for 'World History' and it came up with 500 results of pornography.
