This boils my piss, /g/

Over the last decade the internet has got more restricted, twenty years ago it was all usenet boards and shit, you were a pirate on the open sea. These days normies use "apps" from the "marketplace" to browse eBay and Amazon for shopping, Facebook for socialisation.

It's like the whole Net Neutrality thing. Imagine pic related. Most internet users wouldn't notice the difference.

Sure these things don't effect anyone with a modicum of knowledge, but the continuing trend in clamping down on freedom isn't going to reverse. When I was a kid I would look through Geocities for nudes. These days kids just close Minecraft on their iPad and open their Pornhub app. I mean, compare the easy modification of XP to Windows 10 or iOS.

Sure they would. Nobody likes paying for something that was previously free. Then there's clickbait websites that tell people what to think.

>the internet was a niche, mysterious place back then with so much wonder and potential. everything was new and we were all experiencing it together. best of all, it was only people with a specific interest in computers that were on it. its become an ugly, jaded, malformed beast since then. everyone is on it now, and inevitably theyve brought everything that sucks about people with them. its no longer a place to escape from the world, it IS the world.

It is, it's all about the perceived removal of choice to the average person, numbnuts.
