It's a fact of Internet life: assholes outnumber good guys and
gals, it seems. Or at least they tend to be the loudest and most
annoying. They send e-mail to people with "get rich quick"
schemes, time share bullshit, pornography, and threats of bodily
harm or legal suits. They spam the shit out of newsgroups with
their commercial appeals, hiding behind anonymous remailers and
bulk spammers, costing you and I money to deal with.
There is some redress, however. Ther
problem is, it isn't enough. There will always be
assholes on the Internet. They are like vermin on a ship:
the only way to exterminate them is to burn the ship to its
devils, and then sink the keel. That is, it would require a
monsterous redesign of the Internet to eradicate assholes.
This will never happen, and I for one would not want to see
the Internet fucked with.
