The internet is a blight. It is making children delirious. People die and suicide because of the internet daily. Nowadays, it's quite easy to look up a tutorial on how to kill yourself successfully, via the help of the World-Wide-Web.

It's filled with trolls, they make fun of people, take away their pride and leave them in the cold. And it's growing worse, daily.

Porn is poisoning the minds of our children.

Don't let me even get started on the Deep Web, the place where pedophiles love to hang out, alongside drug dealers, terrorists and hackers.

Danger is real, son.

You're using the internet now.

Wrong. What if I told you that I'm writing my messages on paper and I'm sending an enforcer to channel them to the world-wide-web?
masterdrave

Con

It doesn't matter if you're using an "enforcer" or not, you're still using the internet to get your "message" across, if you can even call this feeble effort that. The internet is a resource that provides data and knowledge that is not only useful, but can prevent so many terrible things from occurring.

The internet can corrupt you.
I'm guessing you haven't laid your eyes on the Deep Web. Go and lurk the internet there.
See the pedophile websites that lurk the sea.
It's very useful... to the wrong people indeed.
Oh, and if you're feeling the need for ordering some drugs, just go to the Silk Road.

Con

So what. Just because the internet "can" corrupt you, doesn't mean it will. I'm guessing only sick little men who hideaway in their dark cupboards like you only search the "deep web" or the "sea" or whatever the hell you're calling it. The internet is the most useful tool that's ever come into this world. Use it.

No internet? You're saying goodbye to a massive amount of technology that you rely on everyday. Also the internet is not the drive for most suicidal deaths, that would be emotionally unstable, abusive relationships with family or friends. For trolls, if you don't like them then learn to tolerate them or don't use the internet. Others do tolerate them. And for porn, such a subjective claim. And the deep web, yes the deep web helps with many crimes but don't forget about all the good that comes from the internet too.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro makes the assertion that the internet causes people to die and Con does not refute it. Con says the internet is a useful tool, but that has no impact. Con says the internet can "can prevent so many terrible things from occurring" but does not bother to tell me what those things are.
