Well, I don't think of it as good or evil, AND, where there is light there is also shadow. But I really could not imagine my life without it. :D

Is the hammer evil if someone bashes another person's head in with it? It's all about intent...

i have to agree with *MPMG

it's not the internet that's good or evil, it's the people who use it and abuse it.

the internet itself is just a tool

To me it's all dependent on how it's used.

Both/neither. I had to live 4 months without it and I hated that. Unfortunately, there are also many things about it that I don't like.

I don't think of it as really good or really bad... As with everything, there are two sides to it. And for me personally, I think the advantages are more than the disadvantages. However, I'm still very careful with what I say or do on the internet, and I certainly try not to stay on it to long. I wouldn't want to become like my little brother who'd like to be online for the rest of his life :laughing:

One of the biggest advantages, however, is that I learned to express myself more on here. It has helped me a great deal in real life as well...

Simple answer.
Phrase : The closer you to the light, the greater the shadow become

Just like the deeper you went in the internet, the bigger the risk you will face D:

"Good" and "bad" are moral concepts, which qualify actions, not things. The Internet isn't good or bad, it can be used for the good and for the bad, just like cars, hammers, nuclear physics or baseball bats.

All in all, though, I think the good uses of the Internet outweigh tremendously the evil ones. It is definitely one of the greatest achievements of humankind.

It's not good or evil. It is just a tool, and it can be used in many good and wrong ways.
