Maybe I'm wrong, but I read "this just highlights some of the negative things about the internet" as a very strong statement. "harmless fun" can disagree with it but is nowhere near the opposite.

I can easily see the position that pressing this button is a horrible skinner box action. It doesn't require being anti-fun. I don't happen to agree, but it's a valid opinion.

What I can't figure out is the true opposite to that position, where it's an amazing consequence of technology. What's the logic there, I'm highly curious! Like, mixing work and play is kind of neat but you can do that anywhere.
