A Warning about the Internet from IBM in 1994

I love that they thought it was important to warn people about the content on the internet in 1994 and wonder if anyone read this and thought, “well this is not for me” and unplugged the modem immediately? I do not think I ever saw this, but if I had, it would have spurred my curiosity. It is nearly 20 years later now and I think we can say without a doubt that whoever wrote this disclaimers head would explode if they saw what we can do now on the web.
