    Misinformed people--on the internet.

    The age of bloggers. The Googlers. The bandwagon hoppers.

    I see a lot of it and it's bound to get worse.

    I too hate when people cannotmjust check with Google before posting. It's so annoying to see how easily misinformation spreads.

    Not only checking Google before posting, but not corroborating their information any sort of reputable sources before making, say, a blog (tech blog) post on something.

    MRoogle needs to be more widely advertised. :p

    Ahh, the Internet.

    It gives everyone a voice, everyone a platform, but there is no requirement to check sources or facts before you spout off. It's the proverbial "speakers corner".

    Truly.

    People forget to look at what came before us and why certain things happen. Books have taken the back seat. There is so much information that can be found in books that it's unbelievable.

    I love Google, but it makes people lazier. It makes me lazy, but at least I know it's a problem and I'm trying to fix it.

    I would hate it if sites or organizations that do research went under. I hope that doesn't happen.

    Google makes me seem smarter. :) I would never post something that I'm not absolutely sure of.
