Of course there are working-class people on this list, but in a very
small minority. This is not a cheap medium of communication yet. When
children get used to it in the schools I think they will start using the
internet in libraries or cybercafes. You will see a difference in a few
years. It is only just beginning here in the secondary (high?) schools

Mind you.....if some people think this list too rough for them now, I
dread to think what they will say in the future!
