@chosafine fun fact: the early internet was programmed so that if more than 20% of the population said they weren't ready for the Internet, the entire system would delete itself along with all digital copies of its planning documents so that the Internet could never be made again

After a hundred years of operation, the Matrix's stability degrades, threatening a system crash that would kill every single inhabitant within the Matrix. Therefore, the Matrix must be reloaded...

@chosafine I'm sure it's pretty obvious that people who are definitely not ready for the internet will never click "I'm not ready". >20 years of removing malware have made that rampantly obvious to me.

@chosafine Nobody is. Whom am I to say otherwise… 🤔
