Do you think that the Internet breaks down barriers? I certainly believe so. If you are an adult, you probably come in contact with people from different walks of life every time you spend some time on the Internet. You probably spent more time talking with people of different ages than you have ever had a chance to do so in the past. You are also likely to talk with people from different races without you even knowing about it. Would you talk to a teenager if you were on the street? Probably not, but you do not mind an occasional chat with younger people on the Internet.
