That's like your grandfather saying it was better without electricity cuz no one bothered you. just my 2 cents.

I'm split on this.. been around since the early days, and seen the net grow and expand to the wonder it is today.
But to be honest I prefer the characters from back when I started, which certainly never gave me the feeling that I needed to hide and it certainly did not feel filled with the nastiness that todays net is, or the need to protect oneself from that.
But then again all the net is doing is reflecting our current society..
