Out of curiosity, do you men/women/fbi of the internet believe that the net has gone too far?
By this I mean that we seem to be living in a state of super surveillance. I sort of feel like this "place" isn't what I remember it being 10 years ago, let alone 15 years ago, but on the net you can't do a single thing without a high level of scrutiny.
You can't go on websites to apply for a loan, or go on dating apps/sites under fear of catfishing or trolling, you can't "try" to get famous on YouTube/NG/anywhere else where e-Fame comes with vicious trolls.
While I don't let these things stop me from doing what I like doing, I am extremely suspicious of virtually everything. One thing that almost had me not go to the office party last year was that while I'm familiar with the staffers and masterminds at NG I just am not familiar with who I'd meet. This same principle is applying to the internet world, and how "close" we really are when we could very well be far apart.
There was a time when I was WAAAAY more connected with virtually everyone I've met online but even people I've come to trust over a decade I have gone totally tight-lipped on.
So I ask you again, do you guys believe the internet has gone too far? Is anonymity becoming a thing of the past, and only a trait that only the lustrious can pull off? Or, perhaps we do the opposite, and try to bring everyone together under the foolish belief we're almost a civlization type one?
