Teenage boys are among the forum’s most active and extreme users, according to the CCDH. In one instance, a boy who said he was 17 was recorded as being on the forum for an average of 10 hours per day during the period of the report, posting an average of 40 times per day, the report said. Another, who claimed to be 15, spent an average of five hours per day on the site, posting repeatedly about his desire to commit a mass shooting.

Today's youth have more and more free time on their hands and this is what they're doing with it. They have fewer chores, school seems to be less challenging, and few of them play sports. Few kids work on the farm or have side hustles anymore. They're constantly attached to their electronic leashes. I think they need more physical activity and more practical skills and they need to spend far, far less time on the internet.
