Has Google deleted or blocked everything on the web that can't be monetized? Once upon a time, the internet was a place where people freely posted information, stories, photos, art, poetry, etc. You could connect with other people, learn about things, and explore. Now there is nowhere to go without handing over your personal information and the content is usually not worth it. Even many blogs that look like they might be run by actual people all look strangely similar and are updated with alarming regularity for something one person does in their free time. I am supremely bored. And thanks to the internet, there is no neighborhood bookstore to hang out in anymore.
