yes If I had to choose between internet or television, although arguably with iPlayer and 4od, Internet has elements of TV too, I'd choose internet every time.

Agree 100%.  For me the Information Superhighway is just that ... it is the greatest source of info imaginable.

There are bad points in many great things, I just don't see the point of your question. I can't imagine a single sensible person on this planet that would say overall the Internet is bad when weighing up the pros and cons.

Well, if you're going to be serious ...

Russian brides needs to get moved into "BAD"

Not convinced that communication is more effective - just look at MW for example.

Shopping - definitely.

Research - definitely

Sharing information - never

Not interested in porn

Decimation of retail industry = buggy whips and automobiles

What about a recording artist who can't make any profit due to privacy, and has been groomed on Facebook, and subsequently molested.

That sort of argument is like me telling you that every car driver appreciates the fact roads exist and then you rebutting with a story about how a car driver crashed and was left paralyzed because a driver didn't understand he had to drive on the left hand side of the road. If it wasn't for those blasted roads, that idiotic driver would have walked.
