I still remember the first time I got access to the Internet. I was 15 years old. I opened up Netscape -- that blue ship-wheel icon! -- went straight to Yahoo!, and searched for chat rooms. The first chat room the directory recommended to me, oddly enough, was "Christian singles chat." This is going to be good, I thought. Logging in under the name of "Satan," I entered the chat room and declared: "I am Satan! Bow before me, Christians, or I shall devour your souls!!" This was back in the days of unmoderated web chat, and I wrote my declaration in huge red capital letters that filled the screen.
For about five minutes, I sat there chuckling as the poor Christian singles shouted at me to get out. But then, to my horror, another user logged in under a very similar name ("Satan666," or something like that), and started doing the exact same thing I had done.
