"[S]ubnetworks (fully or partially closed) within the potentially fully open Internet are effectively ghettos, with users segregated behind opaque walls hidden from the general public of Internet users. It appears that many people find a certain comfort factor in being within this kind of enclosed niche, a sort of cyberwomb, imperceivable -- or only visible to a very limited degree -- by those without a certain level of acceptance either to the ghetto management and/or to the users themselves."
