Yep, the internet was much better before the sheep found it and it became fashionable :/
It was never created for advertising and corporate BS. The infrastructure and code it's built on is intentionally designed to prevent it being controlled. I'm hoping before Tim Berners-Lee etc. dies, they update it to **** them all over
The problem is it is being controlled now. Web hosts routinely nuke 'darkweb' content, never mind lamebook, twatter and crappit removing everything they deem slightly offensive, and even police and the law now getting involved in monitoring whatever is said online.
