    The Danger Zone
    Pros:
    - Faster (days/weeks for a letter to arrive vs. milliseconds for a message to arrive)
    - Larger, more expansive
    - Able to connect and meet new people
    - Anonymity
    - Safer (you can't send anthrax online)
    - Cyber ([​IMG])

    Cons
    - Anonymity
    - More vulnerable (internet viruses, e-mail hackers, etc)
    - Less personal (hand written letters vs. typed e-mail)
    - Bad people (pedophiles, hackers, rapists, etc)

    Just don't put the "cyber" part. That was a joke [​IMG]

    The anonymity thing wasn't a joke though. It can be a double edged sword. Some people can use it to meet new people without giving out their personal information, and other people use it as a means to seduce people (such as how sexual predators lure kids into giving their address and stuff).
