    Perspective Counts

    The internet is a TOOL (such as a scalpel) that can be used for good or for evil. The user determines, by how they use it, whether the outcome is for a positive or for a negative (subjectively determined) outcome.

    Thus the internet, by itself is neither good nor evil. Its use by users determines its value according to the perspective of onlookers.

    yes blue frog, you got it right. i think that it is not really the internet that is veil, but the people who try to use it for bad doings. who operates the computer or internet? only the people.

    The internet is complelty Neutral. It helps you out with info and good forums like this, however it can give you viruses, and annoy you when it doesnt work
