On one level it seems a great way to give access to teachings which would otherwise not be available to great numbers of people, but on the other hand it's also an enabler of a plethora of fakes, and semi-fakes, to promote themselves and for material which should be secret, becoming publically accessible.
Personally, the internet has been a great blessing for me, Dharmawise. The resources available online are really incredible. That said, of course one must use one's discrimination. The internet is actually a good tool for examining teachers in many cases, so it's not clear to me what the overall impact of the internet on the proliferation of fakes has been.
