I know you all may think I am crazy to suggest that this so powerful thing we call the internet would ever end. But just take a look at what we have accomplished in such a short time. What's it been, 20 years or so? if that. That we as a society have had access, and only the last 10 or so have we had the incredible rapid growth of users beyond comprehension.
How incredibly attached we have become with all its splendor, shopping, communication, research, investments and income, logistics, time management, health, and so on. It is endless it seems. And yet for some it is a playground to act out aggression, and terrorism by way of worms and viruses which serve no one but the developers sick ego. Or, as we all I am sure can assume is true, serve the developers pocket as they then design the antivirus software to remove the problem. The internet has become a huge game for adware and spam artists. They know the next moves that are made will be to try to stop their intrusions. So on they go to the next play to continue the cycle.
As we can see by sites like this one that it is becoming a way of life to deal with these issues. Even as I was using the links here to download the fix for one I was getting hammered by some other unsolicited antivirus developer and was tricked (or was not paying close enough attention) into clicking the "next" button only to get nearly locked up trying to get out of it. And this insanity of the evil wasted intelligence of the perpetrators of these attacks on our peace of mind and valuable time is increasing more rapidly than the patience and desire for internet access can bare. In my opinion anyway.
If there is not going to be any accountability and prosecution for the ones who have this sickness then where does it all end up? It is so obvious that if it continues unchecked that the internet as we have known it will be abandoned just like any game where the children who don't know how to be team players or are unable to perform as well as they wish they could usually are so disruptive as to make sure no one plays or enjoys themselves. Pathetic
So, in closing I will acknowledge that it is at this time impossible to track the activities that these people do it seems. And yet only yesterday I heard that the information about you at your local library regarding over due books and fines will be potentially used to amend your credit rating. So it is also obvious that information gathering can go deep, as deep as they want it to go, just follow the money.
I wonder where it will all end up. Private internet severs that have to maintain certain levels of integrity for a price, only to have major shutdowns to do cleanouts or what? Just a lot of forums and people with anxiety wishing they never had internet to begin with.
