I hadn't heard of Pho, you haven't heard of snuff..........
It's only as safe as the surfer you interact with.

The internet itself is fine.

The sick perverts who are on it and the gullible idiots who associate with them make it a dangerous places for morons.

It's all in the interaction on the other end. I you post provocative stuff of yourself on-line and happen to have an obsessed stalker type, snuff might happen.
Some people don't get stalked until they are discovered by their obsessor on FB or even here on CR.
There's not much you can do about someone else other than monitoring your own output;

Even popcorn can be dangerous if you find the person allergic to it.

the internet is a good thing for it allows the use to find things around the word in seconds/minutes. it is only bad because bad people do bad things with it.

a few billion use it and since no human is truly good the internet is used for good and bad. also it is an inanimate object, like a gun, lamp, chair, car. it sits there until someone touches/picks it up and use's it. i agree that the internet can be abused at times, but it is also the person/s judgment to abuse it or not. it also up to the individual using to to believe everything they are reading or not and let them selvs get scammed or abused becuse they think that everyone who uses the internet is a Jesus bible thumb-in goodie too-shoe can do harm. if a person lacks the judgment or ability to tell when someone is bull shitting and or lieing threw the net by how they say things, then it there fault for lacking in logic, reason, and self discipline.

if a persons under 15 gets offended by anything on the internet needs to back away from the computer and unplug it and never use it until they grow up to understand that they will see things that they don't want to see. or even read things that will "hurt there feelings," actually anyone who is like that at any age shouldn't be on the internet in the first place. like reality you are going hear, see and feel thing you dont want too but are going to get them anyways.

over sensitive people who get offended when they are called bad names of any sort from the lowly "your a dick head" really should get out of the house and sit in a small until they get over there fear of bad words. for there are far worse things on the internet them some one calling you a bad name. >.>

theirs more, but i figure you all get the point now, if you dont, then turn your internet off and go back to kindergarten and grow up.

Physically: The internet itself is safe. Unless you're a troll, it won't try to kill you.

Mentally: No, not really that safe.

Personal security and information: This is mostly limited to the information you or others provide about yourself, combined with people wanting to take advantage of this information.

Licence and copyright laws: There may not be enough respect to other people's work, whether they are copyright protected or not. And when it comes to the politics surrounding licensing various form of entertainment, it's developed into some ridiculous shenanigan.

I think it's both harmful and safe.

Harmful if you're thinking it's your friend and you start sharing REAL information about yourself (And if you're not careful enough, Internet will share that to others.) Plus, it's full of malwares.

Safe if you think it's a virtual thingie that gives you lotsa information, and if you're using it wisely. It's also safe for those people to pretend to be someone else since there are lesser risk of being discovered. ; )
