Yes, with over four billion web pages, the Internet is quite a resource for information, entertainment, etc. Still, everything has its drawbacks. Here are some of the things about the Internet which I find to be something less than spectacular.
• Incredibly dead links !!! Yes there are dead links but there are some that are worthy of “Guinees Book” recognition. Has this ever happened to you? For example, you want to know how to adjust your automobile’s carburetor, so you do a search for that information. You click on the first search engine link (it has to be THE best right?) and you are led to a message board with someone asking a question “How do I adjust my automobile’s carburetor?” Dated March 5, 1997 !!! And in all that time no one has posted any answer and that lonely question is the ONLY information there. ARRRGGHHHH !!!
• Deceptive links. Okay, you are still in need of carburetor adjustment, so you click on a promising link that says “all you need to know about adjusting carburetors”. However, when you get there, you find it will tell you all you need to know if you spend $19.95 for someone’s book. I don’t mind advertising and sponsored links but I do mind something like this ending up in a search engine section that should lead to a free website. GRRRRRRRR !!!
Okay, there must be other folks out there with some complaints.
Let’s hear them.
