depends where I'm posting and what kind of population the message board is made up of. Just like in real life.
My 'persona' on this board is merely a skeleton of its real self, which is multidimensional and inconsistent. I also don't really care about my posts here.

I'm about the same. I try to be a very much "what you see is what you get" type of person. I am a little less reserved online.
...And a little more articulate online since I don't have the southern accent to work around. (Ah dew type like ah talk every now'n again, just fer shits-n-grins).
