    i thought turning off the modem would suffice ?
    why do we need the NBN ? because the copper network is constipated & needs fibre

    Largely, yes... but they can still be introduced via USB drives, CD/DVD, etc.

    A bit of joke

    Of course you can delete yourself.
    Alone the government won't let that happen and if you have friends they are posting things and maybe pasting images of you while we speak.

    You are there for good.
    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots.

    You can delete yourself from the internet by removing your online accounts and shut down your email accounts or you can use a VPN for a secure browsing.

    Death smiles at everyone. Grumpy old men smile back.
