Internet: Pump or Dump?

The Internet is just a world passing around notes in a classroom.
~Jon Stewart

I'm thinking a lot today about the pros and cons of the Internet today. As much as I love sharing parts of my life through blogging and message boards, it is a little frightening to think that I can be "found" by anyone who is looking.

I don't really have anyone that I'm hiding from; my life is not nearly that exciting. I just like the idea of being anonymous if I chose to be.

What are your favorite and least favorite aspects of the Net?

Hmmm well I must say that ITA with you. But I finally told my self that if someone is reading my blog and they don't like it or have issues with it too bad. It is not their. Not their life, etc. KWIM?
I have had some good friends come out of blogging too though.
I have had some friends that live away from my area who check daily. And has been a great way to stay connected in a way.
I do sometimes watch what I say, delete posts/sentences etc when I know I may not want something shared. So I think it has its pros and cons.
Have a great day!

I think that for the most part people are really respectful, just like in the non-internet world. However, I think the quote is apt, I know that my blog is 99% gossip!
