Comments: Sounds familiar, I also come from old school. I mean when I was a kid we used CB radios and the only way that worked was with so many only sharing 23/40 channels was being polite and waiting your turn. What I found interesting as I was thinking of your article was that happened as well to the CB radio. It was a place of help and courtesy but by the late 1990's it was garbage still is for the most part. I also was used to the old modems some Bells product that ran around 300baud but that was on BBS he internet was nothing like we know today.
I remember getting three phone lines and having 3 9600's and later I had three 56K I thought was insanely fast .*laugh*. I think I had for one year a T11 but we had allot of stuff then, Now we run here around 77-MBs, I digress I watched as the same thing that occurred the CB also occurred in the same pace as the internet up until about 2004 the internet was still semi-polite and soon keyboard commandos and trolls were still in Diapers. Society is an odd set of circumstances where technology evolves knowledge and suppresses intellect and curbs the the moral compass of the average person.
