You were still quite anonymous and could swear or troll or say whatever you liked and there was no 'internet police' or offended people [I wasn't a

There was no deep web, as the whole web was deep. You could still get the deepest, darkest things straight to your computer.
Nobody was moaning about losing their livelihood without adverts, all sites were done by people who wanted to share something and not rake in cheap
