"The internet wasn't invented until the '90s"
And, of course, "www = internet". I weep for the ignorance of today's youth.

The irony being, she is posting in mock_the_stupid. For my friends who, like myself, were using the Internet before the 90s, feel free to jump in there. :-)

(Ah, and a perfect song...)

You will be pleased to know that the very first thing I did in my intro to web design class was inform my students that no matter what they may believe the internet and the world wide web are two different things. Hmm, actually that would be a good question for the quiz. /me makes a note to add it.

You'd make a very good guest speaker ;)

How does it go? Oh, yes.

Back in the day, you used % routing to get mail off site because it was cheaper that way.

Back in the day, I used % routing to get mail off site because it was the *only* way.

RELAY.CS.NET, you are sorely missed. Well, no, you are not missed at all, really but I'm supposed to say something like that, right? Right? :)

No, no. Al Gore didn't invent the world wide web. The whole point is that the web is not the same thing as the Internet, so just because he didn't invent the web, you can't conclude that he didn't invent the Internet.

I think it's a troll given the bitchfight that later breaks out in the comments …
