Lets talk about it.
We can talk about how it propagates and mislead the blind.
We can talk about how it causes affairs.
We can talk about how it desensitizes or dull our minds.
We can talk about how big brother uses it to spy on us daily.
Our we can talk about why we use it so damn much.
And would we go crazy if it were taken away.
Is the internet really dangerous.
I guess it can be. And this is just a few.
What do you think ?

the internet CAN BE dangerous, I don't believe that it is inherently dangerous. But then, pretty much anything CAN BE dangerous when in the wrong hands.

Guns don't kill people, crazy mother*ckers with guns kill people. I think a similar argument could be made for most other things, including the internet.

Technically, it is the laws of physics that kill you. Actually, it is a chain of events that leads to the death, and people will select one particular link to place the blame for the entire chain.

The internet can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing.. But not for the reasons you think... Personality theft, malware messing up your computer.. blah blah.. These things can be avoided with the right software and a little common sense.

Other than that, saying the internet is dangerous is like calling a library dangerous. Sure, there is more information.. and thus more BS.. but as long as you are thinking critically with an open mind, the only thing the internet is going to do is help you.

The internet is the greatest advancement in communication since the telephone.

What do you think ?:

The internet can be dangerous, but so can cars. In cost vs gain, the gain of both the internet and cars heavily outweigh the detriment.

Unless you are a complete fvcking retard and antagonize 4chan or something like that, the internet poses no risk.

As bell said, or if someone is deathly alergic to whatever chemical makeup it is.

Or (going science fiction on you), if the dust has a mass of 3.5*10^-10 (the mass of a single grain of sand), than if it was converted into energy, it would yield 31,500,000 Joules of energy. That is the same amount of energy at 230 lb of gunpodwer. Needless to say, that energy being suddenly released could kill several people.
