    I think it was NPG that said when you're interacting online it's an opportunity to get judged by what you say, not by what you look like, which is clearly impossible IRL--so it's possibly violating a social norm to broadcast your good looks when we're (in theory) out to focus on ideas and not overlook someone for anything but their own lack of thoughtful ideas.

    that's a good point and it hadn't even occurred to me that an opportunity to separate that would appeal to some...thoughtless...maybe...i apologize...just wired differently...i guess.
