The Internet Crazies

Apparently in Sweden, children are becoming increasingly concerned about their parent's internet habits.

I think this falls into the category with school shooting being blamed on video games and suicides blamed on roleplaying games: they would be doing these things or something similar without the internet.

The dads surfing for porn or hooking up with younger women would just be out surfing bars and buying Playboys. The mom addicted to WoW would just be addicted to something else, whether benign or malignant.

That's my opinion anyway.
