A sensible balance to protect against abuse
Let's not be troglodytes here. The internet has unquestionably been of benefit to our modern world.
Developments in technology have brought us closer together, made it easier for us to remain in contact, do business, engage in commerce, be educated, entertained and enlightened - if we so wish.
With freedom though, comes responsibility. Unfortunately, there are distinctly negative aspects to the way some individuals treat the internet as a means to demean, take advantage of, and abuse others.
