My first day on the internet

Recommended Posts

When I started on the internet there these types of things were not typical. Don't really recall spam email and there hardly any ads. My first internet access was through a Unix shell account so no graphics either.

Spam is on the rise, especially within the last five years or so. I think 90% of the emails going out are spam today, simply ridiculous.

I believe it.  I just checked my spam folder and found 250 sent within the last couple weeks...Thankfully Gmail's spam filters are top notch.

I've been on the internet for a long time, quite a bit before I joined OCC and way before I discovered reddit, but I really can't remember what I ever did back then.

the biggest pita is all the advertisment that has flooded the web, and getting rid of it also gets rid of wanted content ...commercialized internet wasn't in my psyche years ago...
