Internets is the propper term for refering to what we refer to as the internet.
My reasoning is as follows:
Information is very important, and being the secretive and controlling government the US has always been has made great strides and protecting information. Therefore it occurs to me that the easiest way to monitor whats on the (conceptually) internet, is to have several internets in existance.
There are three internets:
The locality Internet.
The Conceptual Internet.
The Actual Internet.
The way this works, is the locality internet serves as a buffer of misinformation. It operates on the level of your own contributions. When you upload content to the internet, it is first accessable only for yourself - however appearing to accessible by all.
The Conceptual Internet is censored internet as we know it exists (uncensored for the most part). Through several technological tricks and assistance of quantum computers (that are believe it or not, already in existance) most recent information is available to the public. This is the effect when you upload content to the internet and have some other person confirm it's appearance on the internet. Close personal friends/aquaintences fit under the catagory of locality, and therefor are able to see what ever addition to the internet you are responsible. However, electronic communication to people of limmited interaction is monitored and altered by use of the most advanced version of regEx avialable (quantumEx). Your messages to each other are altered during transit based on clever databased information on each others person locality internet. IE if I were to send him the message of 2x2=4, if for some reason his locality internet contained the information 2x2=5 he would then recieve the message 2x2=5 and we'd both agree on misinformation.
The Actual Internet(TAI) is the actual unaltered uncensored time cached based internet. All information ever posted is cached and logged into TAI, so even if you were to overwrite a page one second after uploading it, both versions are available to the people who are allowed access to TAI. TAI is the most fiercly guarded secret (not the knowledge of it, but access to it).
So you see, being the president he was givin the factual information about the existance of the "Internets". Unfortunately in his lets say lack of "Superior Intellect" doesn't realize he's innocently hinting towards a secret. The government allows this to happen as it is takin as another mis-spoken wordage from the president.
Believe it or not, but this censoring method exists in most every area of communication from the internet to radio broadcasts. Its true.
I also recognize that teh message I've just posted probably won't reach you in its entirety as I've intended. It will probably be filled with (or rather left with after censoring) wholes in possibility or reality that will be rather unconvincing of my thesis statement(The president is right). But I assume at least a vague representation of my thread will be passed along to you in some form, and at the very least I'll see posts confirming your agreement to my theories regardless of whether thats what you originally posted.
Cheers and welcome to the real reality.
