Dichotomy

The internet is both helpful and destructive.

The same tool that allows a person to look up cold symptoms (e.g., “does green mucous require antibiotics?”) also allows strangers to deliver death threats to teenagers who have spoken out after surviving a massacre at their high school.

Computers are used for good and for evil.  And while I understand the use for health questions, I will never understand the cruelty that I learned about this past weekend.
