    Wow. Well, that means more people use the internet, so it gets cheaper for everyone. I don't have a problem with it :D

    But with 20% of web traffic being porn, and 60-70% of email volume being spam, such massive bandwith users might actually be driving UP the cost of internet access, by forcing migration to higher bandwidth switches/routers/servers, more complicated filtering/browsing software to deal with all the unwanted crap, and faster PCs to run the more complicated software.

    Add in all the useless/distracting animations, flash, and embedded multimedia crap on most commercial websites these days, and surfing the web nowadays (with cable/DSL and gigahertz CPUs) seems not a whole lot faster than it was circa 1992 or so, with a 28.8 dialup and a 486 CPU. Certainly the amount of useful CONTENT per megabyte transmitted has gone way down....:(

    Think of how much faster the Internet would be if everyone just used Kazaa.

    Other info on porn and the net:

    I read 40% of the money being made on the net is with porn. Yet, no one I ever talked to pays for that stuff. I'm sure that you to don't know anyone. So, who goes there?

    I recently heard on the radio that some kids had sex in school now! Not only that but they have a lot of varied activities too - anal, fellation, ect... This, by many experts, is attributed to the accesibility of the material on the net.

    Should I've put this on the sex forum?

    Man, I never got laid in school. I feel so left out....

    Kids were fucking in school before the internet was huge. Porn has been around for a while as well... just another something to go after with your torch and pitchfork

    Come on man, at least our grandfathers had the Sears Roebuck catalog, even if it was only a drawing of a lady wearing the full body-armor that in those days was passed of as panties.
