    It maybe even the key to unlock problems around the world. However, not everything found on the Internet is safe and useful, as the dark side of the 'Web' can trap the user and lead them into grave problems. An example of this is being led into traps as a result of 'pop-ups', which can often be bogus and result in money loss or other unfortunate circumstances. Another example is that disturbing sites, which infringe human rights, may appear on the screen without the user even searching for them. Exemplar of this is reported incidents of users being subjected to sites urging people to commit suicide or even to make a bomb.

    How does amail differ from other forms of communication? Prior to the age of electronic methods, communication was either: * Face to face (corporeal) * Phone to phone (voice only) * Written word ("snail mail") When we speak with someone face to face there are a host of channels through which we are communicating aside from actual words.

On the telephone some of these nonverbal signals are still there, such as pauses and tone of voice.
