   * Brits fear the Internet, survey indicates (Nando.net Scripps Howard)
     Far from embracing the brave new world of the Internet, most Britons
     view it with fear and suspicion, a report published Monday reveals.
     Fears that it aids fraud, creates unsociable computer nerds and
     cultivates porn addicts abound among the largely technophobic public.
     The survey, by the consumer magazine Which? Online, found people were
     most concerned about the accessibility of pornography and other
     illegal materials on the Internet, with nearly six out of 10 (58
     percent) believing it undermined public morality. Only 13 percent said
     they would feel comfortable allowing their children to use the
     Internet unsupervised, and 72 percent believed it should be regulated.
