You can :

  2. Format the chats :
  3. once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list. You can also add empty formatting tags by selecting nothing and clicking one of the buttons/menu thus allowing you to add the chat text afterwards between these tags.*
  4. Access to the different channels : you can have access to different channels restricted to only some usergroupds or for specifics use of the chatbox. The different channels are accessible from the buttons on the left of the chatbox.*

    In my opinion, the Internet brings more good than harm. It opens up the mind, allows instantaneous propagation of information (and misinformation too admittedly), and fosters the integration of human race as a whole.

    Internet is a tool. A tool can be used to bring harm, and good...

    I guess everyone's answer will be the same: it brings both harm and good. Whether it brings harm or good depends on how you perceive and also how you use it. IMO, internet still brings more good than harm.

    This was one of the title of my english essays (last year). Wonder if you're finding points for your essay. Hahaha

    I think the same question and answer can be applied to almost any scientific advancement in the history. Throughout the history, innumerable advancement have been questioned or even actively impeded due to the fear of its potential harms.

    Does fire bring more harm or good? Try asking a lost jungle trekker who just started a fire as well as a bushfire victim, and you will get different answers.

    Does in-vitro vertilisation bring more harm or good? An infertile couple and a fundamentalist believer would give you different responses.

    Does automobile vehicles bring more harm than good? Ask an accident victim, then ask the people who escaped bushfire on a car.

    Does the Internet bring more harm or good? Ask a scientific researcher and a BN politician, I am pretty sure you get different answers too.

    Every new invention poses a challenge to the old ways of living, and the Internet is not an exception. The history of human civilisation is a history of scientific progress, we progressed from the discovery of fire, the discovery of electricity, the discovery of destructive atomic forces, and the discovery of basic building blocks of life. All these discoveries come with a potential destructive power, but inevitably all of them became the very building block of our modern civilisation. They are what we are. So instead of looking at the Internet superficially in the context of what they do to a kid who is addicted to Facebook, try to look at the impact of connectedness and the fostering of immense collaboration on a global scale. We will then realise the "harm" of the Internet is not really that significant after all.

    Haha! This was the topic for our moral final paper! My answer was yes back then. I think that for an individual, it's hard to determine whether it brings more harm or not, because it depends on how you use it =)
    For the society, nation, I think it brings more harm. You see the internet is polluted by internet crime, plagiarism, porn, hacking, etc. . .

    Its time again for my opinion. Well, yeah I cant say yes or no for this topic. The topic is too subjective for people like us. As what we know, there are lots of people out there working as doctors, students, engineers and lots more. And sometimes Internet plays the significant roles for people and sometimes it seems harm and useless. The main point that I wanna spit out here is its all back over to the application of the Internet.

    In my opinion, the bad part of the internet is, it creates a virtual world that everyone is so attached to, that people eventually begin to neglect the reality world.
    I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. : )
