    Is the Internet broken?

    It started out as a place that Susan from Minnesota could start low-key publishing news about their fav celeb.

    It was yet to be found by scammers/promoters/spin doctors/agenda pushers/flat-earthers/anti-vaxers/lawyers.

    Then it got monetized.
    More clicks and links meant more money.
    People started making more money from websites.
    More clicks == more money.
    More retards entering the internet == more clicks == more money.
    The more articles you post that appeal to retards (think anything Kardashian/PC agenda of the day) == more clicks == more money.
    News websites post more articles that retards respond to == more clicks == more money.
    Serious news websites put up paywalls to help fund better journalism == people flocking to tabloid websites rather than pay for proper news.
    More retards flocking to free news websites == more clicks on retard articles == more money for tabloid web news == more & more retard news to appeal to more retards.


    Where does it end?
    Is there a solution?
    Ronald McDonald never sells to children. He informs and inspires through magic and fun.

    this recent firefox fcukup exposed many people to how bad 'tinternet is now without an adblocker

    ads are both invasive and dangerous if they are not text or simple banners hosted on the actual site

    bring back AOL for the masses

    people are idiots, it's not the internet that is broken, it's the people

    give them any good technology and they will abuse it and fuck it up

    see bitcoin as the perfect example

    Somewhat like Thai children. In that if they can't figure out how a toy works they break it. That is a factual statement.

    Come back Janet, all is forgiven.

    Internet can be a source of really good information but it's hidden amongst a whole load of crap. It's not just opinion stuff, there are all sorts of errors from maths equations, code snippets to insect identification. You need to cross check between 4 or 5 sites and even then with no certainty.

    The click bait news and annoying ads that fill the screen is cooking shite too.

    No it isn't. In fact it's quite ridiculous.

    Years ago I heard someone (rightly) describe at as the world's biggest repository of decaying information.

    Probably still true.

    indeed, and when you surf for tech stuff, it doesn't help with the hundreds of blogs written by clueless Indians (like harry) trying to sound smart with buzz words, but are light on actual content or insight, and full of hot air over a minor piece of technology they think is important but nobody cares about because it doesn't produce anything (like an Indian worker)

    Wasn't it porn that set off the internet? And as it scaled needs/wants increase so that it always has been and always will be scaling.

    Remember when you had to wait a half hour to download a 3 minute clip? Now you could blast out several movies in that time.

    Not broken, just getting into gear.
