Computers make everything more efficient. They do things that humans could never do. They save lives as well. I don't really know any good reasons for why computers would be generally bad.

Side: Yes,they are good.

Nothing is ever Bad! It is made bad. Charles Babbage never made a computer thinking he can watch porn over it. He just made it for a benefit. So it is a good thing. Now how you use it wrong. It is all in the HUMAN BRAIN.

Side: Yes,they are good.

If computers were bad, how would I be able to chat on Createdebate. Go CD and for that matter, COMPUTERS.

Side: Yes,they are good.

If you say computers are bad, why are you using it? If you agree to communicate face-to-face, then I suggest you to cancel you Snapchat, insgram, facebook, twitter, e-mail....... Nowadays, computer is a indispensable thing, no because you can play games with them, but people use computer to work, study, communicate,etc. It is a simble of this modern, techy time.

Side: Yes,they are good.

They are tools, or possibly multi-tools in this case. As with all tools though, it's what you do with them that qualifies as 'good' or 'bad'.

Side: neither good nor bad

It is not as if computers choose to do that, or anything. Besides, there are far worse things in life than porn.

the also waste you time when you could be finding something good to do.

Says the person posting this response on a computer.

And not all things computer related are a waste of time. They can give you information, help you network, get directions, etc. If the person using the computer is wasting their time, that is their choice. Don't blame the tool, blame the user.

they are the source of slang words come on WHAT are slang words.

Well, they are A source. But the swing kids and various ethnic American groups had slang DECADES before computers. Slang will always be there. And so what? What is bad about slang?

ban computer before they take over the world.

They already have. And thing are a heck of a lot more efficient now.

Side: Yes,they are good.

I agree that computers are much useful and help to ease human labour but due to it to points r coming that -

a) If a computer can do work of 99 labours out of 100, than the problem of unemployment for that 99 labours would rise and will cause them to do either crime or a thing much worser than it.

b) If a computer is used for operations in medical science then a technical problem or a virus can even be fatal for the patient.

We can't totally depend on computers cause a single virus can even be fatal for our work.

Side: No,they are bad.
