I should be grateful that I am able to live in a first-world country. Shock sites were basically what made the internet so much more different than other mediums. You saw unspeakable things that you’d never see on television or even on vidya. The internet is going through a creative dark age I remember there being more interesting things to watch back in the day now everything seems so much more formulaic, and homogenized, and very safe to put in other words. Rather than being experimental, unique, and less restricted speech.
