Internet from a Sociological Point of View and Youth Protection[edit]

Reads like a personal essay, to me. Original research, basically. Not to mention it's freaking long. And no, I'm not putting that forward as a reason it needs to be deleted, I'm just surprised by its size and feel like sharing it. But really: WARNING: This page is 84 kilobytes long. Please consider condensing the page and moving the detail to another article so it is not approaching or in excess of 32K. It's big. - Vague | Rant 11:08, Dec 24, 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. A worthless tirade against Internet rights under a convoluted guise of "protecting children." Zero encyclopedic value. Numerous formatting and grammatical errors. No wikification. In short, unfit for Wikipedia, let alone any respectable publication. --Alexwcovington 11:50, 24 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, I don't know what else to say. First of all, it's big, it's POV, and it's poorly formatted. Even if that could be cleaned up, it's still original research (or potentially a copyvio). If blanked and rewritten from scratch, the title (which needs to be properly capitalized) still sounds like an essay title, and any material included in this article could equally well be added to age of criminal responsibility, internet addiction, protection of minors, etc. I still think, but can't prove, that it's primarily a copyvio – all the usual signs (length, style, lack of formatting) are there. --MarkSweep 11:59, 24 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Copyvio, tagged and listed. --fvw* 12:03, 2004 Dec 24 (UTC)
  • Delete, protect the children from copy-paste copyvios and original research. Wyss 00:40, 25 Dec 2004 (UTC)
