    "Adults" vs "Teenagers" and the Internet

    Do you think adults and teenagers/college age kids act differently on the internet?

    Since nobody feels like talking,

    "Adults" grew up without the internet being a part of their daily lives. The internet was a very different place than it is today. I think that accounts for the differences in behavior on the internet

      for some people the internet IS their life.

        Hmm, I used BBS systems etc back when Internet wasn't yet publically available, so in that view I can't see much difference.

        However, it seems teenagers take the shit they post & the responses they get more seriously... ie. get really pissed if you insult them as a joke or something. Whereas adults usually don't.

              I think Brand hit it pretty much bang-on, actually. Most "adults" who didn't grow up with the net (and some of us who did) simply see it as another interesting diversion, but only one facet of our lives,and a relatively small one.

              However, there are many others who grew up on the net from younger than myself (like LLL, I started on BBSes when I was 10? 11?) For many, it's a much larger source of social stimulation. I'll be curious as to what happens when these people reach family-bearing age.

                I dunno, I think that teenagers on the whole (ie those with non-internet lives) take the going ons much less seriously than adults, who are always complaining about accountability and etc. as if the discussions were face to face.

                  The thing that cracks me up is the 'we are scared of the internet' crowd.
                  Pathetic.

                    "social stimulation" = wacking off?

                      Yeah, I agree with Djeter1234. Examples:

                      Captshady vs Deus vs Bopyd

                      DRD vs the west coast crew

                      CT vs boyd

                        You aren't of family-bearing age? ... WTF, we were so looking forward to cute kittens with you & Sharlintier.

                          I actually think the exact opposite of that.
