Those who actually know internet, let's start help others using it correctly.
For example, hijacking lately as been thrown around a lot and incorrectly so.
What is hijacking when properly understood? Please provide examples for discussion, if clarity calls for it.
I've explained some internet before to no avail, but maybe having a thread dedicated to it will help others. For example, troll here is used incorrectly about 99% of the time.
I do not consider this internet. This is something I might have seen on the Jack Paar show in the early 1960s (some entertainer trying to plug their own schtick).
I have been on the internet since 1980 (I believe it was termed Darpanet when I started). It wasn't perfect. In order to successfully send a file by ftp one often had to go to the hub maps to directly specify the path from one hub to the next to the next to the next in order for it to get to its destination. If I recall correctly each hub was separated by the pipe symbol (I only mention this because instead of |, it might have been \! or \|, I just do not remember).
I also purchased a Commodore 64 before it came out (around 1982), purchased a 300 baud modem a year or two later, and I did post at BBS's. So historically, I might be considered someone that is somewhat knowledgeable about the internet.
Back to the original sentence. The media does not determine the phenomenon above. It is just the prevalent media.
