On the whole cyber bullying thing that's bullshit. Saying people deserve harassment for "attention whoring" is just fucking stupid.

Myth 4 is a load of crap. No one asks to be bulled online or in real life. People who bully will just pick on any random person.

I believe there are many misconceptions of the Internet. I would like to clarify these misconceptions in this post. Here they are.

Myth 1: You can learn everything on the Internet.

Fact: You cannot learn everything on the Internet, contrary to many peoples' opinions. There is just too much biased nonsense online that even if you can learn about just about any subject, most of the stuff you will be learning will be biased nonsense. If you want to learn about academic subjects (as in subjects they teach you in school) online, such as political science, psychology, economics, biology, computer science, and etc online, you will be sorely disappointed because all you will end up learning is biased nonsense. In order to truly become an expert at any academic discipline (such as psychology, political science, computer science and biology), you need to study the subject in a university. The only exceptions to this rule would be miscellaneous subjects such as anime and video games, which you can become an expert at just by learning about these subjects on the Internet.

Pretty much 99% of the Internet is just crazy conspiracy theories. There is very little real facts on the Internet. 99% of the Internet is just pure nonsense. Only 1% of the Internet is real facts. If you want an education, go to school, read a book or watch some TV. At least, these sources of information are required to give you real facts because they are subject to quality control. Whereas there is no quality control for the information you receive online, which is why most of the time the "information" you see online is TRASH.

Myth 2: The only use for the Internet is just porn

Fact: The Internet is also used by insane conspiracy theorists to spread their nonsensical conspiracy theories. Yes, there is a lot of porn online, but I believe the Internet has just as much insane conspiracy theories as there is porn.

Myth 3: The Internet is better than IRL for making friends

Fact: The Internet is not better than IRL for making friends. While it is possible to make friends online, making friends IRL is better than on the Internet.

Myth 4: People, who are cyberbullied, are cyberbullied for no reason

Fact: While nobody deserves to be cyberbullied, people, who are cyberbullied, are cyberbullied for a reason. They are cyberbullied because they are attention whores, who crave too much attention, most of the time. Don't be an attention whore, and naturally the trolls (aka cyberbullies) will not attack you en masse. If you are being cyberbullied or trolled, just ignore the troll. Remember the old saying: DON'T FEED THE TROLL.

Myth 5: You can find child porn on Google.

Fact: It is near impossible to find child porn on Google. The only place where you can find child porn is on the Darknets or deep webs such as Tor, i2p and Freenet. Thankfully, Google quickly removes any child porn that is posted on their search engine. However, accessing the deep webs (which contain child porn) can be done by Google. But you cannot find child porn from Google search results. You need to download Tor, i2p and Freenet to find child porn. Ok, I'm not suggesting you should do this (unless you are a mentally ill person), but I'm just clearing another myth of the Internet.

Do you have any other myths about the Internet? I would like you to suggest more myths about the Internet.


do you have any idea how many people groan inwardly thinking "not him again" every time you make a post?

your first one is BS, people are just as biased in real life as anything on the web is. Also there are many collages that give online classes, and plenty of people to take those classes. Also most people will look at multiple sources and decide for themselves.

3. it is great for making friends, and they are real friends by the way. Real life friends are nice but I have made better friends online than I have ever made by other means, and not everyone is able to be comfortable being social.

4, and I apologize in and advance to the mods but something should not be edited. [this mod disagrees; insulting language constituting a personal attack was removed. The point can be made without them --lorreen] people are cyber-bullied for the same reasons as they are bullied by in real life. Because people like to abuse those they hate. a few of my dearest friends use social media as an outlet and get cyberbullied for it.

You are no where near as intelligent as you seem to think.

No one really take any of your [insulting language removed] seriously.

End of rant for the moment, again I apologize to the Mods but it was necessary. [it was not necessary --lorreen]

I really don't know why some people think everything on the internet is a lie. I mean, do people actually believe everything that people tell them in real life?

Myth: Every girl you see in an MMO is a guy in real life.

Fact: Only 99% of the girls you see in an MMO are guys in real life.
