I am more direct here. My life is inundated with S types who don't really like to debate/philosophize/argue so I guess I get that here. I am more open on here than I am irl; I think something about this format promotes more honesty and less inclination to waste time on social niceties.

Life Path 11
The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.
Do not resist an evil person, but to him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer also the other. ~Matthew 5:39
Do you behave differently in online in interactions than you do in real life interactions? How so? (e.g. more aggressive, plan what you're going to say more, etc.)
I basically behave the same online as I do in real life. For the most part I am tolerant and objective and I try to be considerate and respectful towards others. I also tend to have a pretty high threshold for tolerating assclowns since I try to give everybody the benefit of the doubt. If a confrontation results I typically am not responsible for starting it and most of the time I will simply ignore it.
Occasionally both in real life and online I will find it necessary to subject someone to their own brand of behavior, but that is very rare. The only difference is that I tend to do it privately/one-on-one with the person in real life and online it tends to happen in public view (which often times cannot be helped).
Another difference: I'm more deadpan when writing online, which reflects my style of thinking. When talking, I tend to come off as alternately more subdued or more cheery than writing, depending on the situation.
I'd like to say no, but it's a dramatic difference.
I'm scared of people... in person I'm very quiet, and for many years alot of people thought I was a mute, since I'd only say a half dozen words a day, and those would be very concise or terse.
Not so bad these days about it, but it's still far quieter, and generally not as outgoing and stumble when speaking alot... brain really never recovered from the lack of speech for so long. At least not fully anyway. Have alot of troubles with speaking in various ways, such as trying to do any sort of multitasking and speaking... speaking takes my entire concentration.
And with my memory as it is... it's easy to loose track of whot I was saying. Whereas, if I'm writing online, on a forum, or whotever, i can keep track of things as I go easily, and the act of writing it out helps me remember whot I've said.
There's some social things as well, things I'd be embarrassed enough that I'd refuse to do in person, I'll gladly do online.
In terms of how I treat people though, I'm the same both online and offline. I don't really have any "anonymity" evilness which many people show, where they're total jerks online simply because they'll never meet the people they're being jerks to.
So I dunno, some ways yes, some ways no.
It doesn't matter if they're right. If they can't proove they're right, then they're wrong. No matter how right they may be.
