      While this is mostly correct in my opinion, it fails on the #1, which is porn.

      • WeBeDoomed

        #1 through #10 is porn. In fact we don’t get to a non-porn usage until around #74…

      • MSG Chicken

        I don’t think porn is the nearly as high for business or home unless they measured government employees under the Demoncraps who want everyone to be employed as their slave.

        Of course if we did that we would a turd-world country since they will put out of business the productive citizens.

        • LoverofLove

          WOW you’re so angry and hateful, you turned this simple article about internet usage into right left fight in the USA…

          FYI moron, this website is visited by millions of visitors from all over the world and the world doesnt revolved around your American bubble so most visitors wont have a clue what Demoncraps is and what the hell you were blabbing about….

          Now beat up some woman, shoot some black kid, or send a death threat to Obama….go take out your anger at the shooting range…thats all you morons got..anger and hatred..

      • VirusGuard

        Yes porn might be number one but spying is number two.

        Take it from a software developer that 2/3 of the traffic on the internet is connected to spyware and pages contain more java-script spyware than visual content.

        if you don’t want to be watched enjoying your porn then get yourself a firewall to block outbound ports and for Gods sake turn any smart TV off in the bedroom because these are even worse than PCs for spying on us

    • Who dat

      As above, what about porn? I was doubtful of the articles accuracy when porn wasn’t first but to not find it on the list at all means your list is just made up in your own head.

    • Neo

      What about scams, social engineering, intel

      • StraightDopes

        Neo:

        you mean, using it FOR those purposes, or learning about those things?

    • Dustdevil

      The true #1 use of the internet is the distribution of pornography, proven fact. Do you count this as communication, entertainment or recreation?

      • VirusGuard

        Well judging by David Cameron wanting to ban encryption the number one use of the internet today must be people planning on blowing us all up.

        Free speech is under attack and i for one will break any rule i like on our internet because it is “we the people” that own it and not tossers like David Cameron so he can keep his nose out.

    • sharonjorgen

      YUP! P O R N…but why?
      “…we now have an instantaneous, worldwide mental playground described as cyberspace. But since 70% of internet traffic is pornographic in nature clearly the MENTAL SATISFACTION OF UNLIMITED ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE or information has not fulfilled our existence. A nine-centered Human experiences its sexuality through the Solar Plexus instead of the Sacral center according to Ra Uru Hu.”

    • The Real Deal

      My computer has three uses.

      Trolling BiN.

      Picking up chicks.

    • The Real Deal

      One thing i never use my computer for is porn. *cough*. What guy wants to see Hot MILF’s in showers? :oops:

      • hansom

    • Thetruth

      Just a heads up on a New conspiracy theory site for you all to keep
      an eye on, We put truth first unlike some others, censorship is not
      allowed at doomjunkie…

    • VirusGuard

      Reading the news today you will need to add facebook censorship/mis-informaion and spying to your list.

      Post anything that goes against state media propaganda that they are spending a fortune on push to your TV screens and you run the risk of it getting deleted or hidden and ATS is also doing a bit of that too.

      Thanks for the offer about Firefox but keep well clear of firefox in androide devices.

      it’s not quite so easy to watch what a browser is doing on a tablet as it is on windows but these buggers have started to use firefox to look at broadcast messages and to then request serical numbers from devices on the nutwork that are then upload across the internet.

      firefox in my book is even worse than Chrome now i have found this out, sold out big time

      Married people don’t watch porn. It is mostly for teens and single adults with a poor sex life. Nothing wrong with that, but to say porn is #1 reason for internet is inaccurate. I mostly agree with the provided list. Porn is definitely in the top ten though.
