I think Erock was secretly behind this. When that guy went off on a rant, he went OFF!
No child, you are not an idiot. I'm sorry you're not stupid, I can't help you.The internet was less populated but also larger. Nothing was really centralized like it is now. If you wanted to put a lot of something online then you'd usually create your own site for it, so it was much more difficult for people to stumble across things. Recommendation algorithms have largely replaced worth of mouth.
So it was fewer people wandering aimlessly around a larger area without any real direction other than word of mouth between one another.
That's my uneducated guess on the matter. Worth noting: I'm a fucking idiot
