On 90% of the Internet

From a conversation with a friend:

"...its like miners going after diamonds getting frustrated from having to drill through all those layers of granite and useless dirt to get to the few precious gems, without realizing that without those layers of rock, the diamonds would never have formed."

Did the internet really create all the horrible, disgusting, perverted and depraved content that we see online everyday?

Did the internet also create all the wonderful, inspiring, beautiful, supportive, informative and helpful things as well?

Or did it simply bring whatever was already in human society: all our flaws, our dreams, our strengths and weaknesses, and display them for the world to see?
