    Yeah, no kidding. You'd have to pay me a lot to put the kind of energy into faking that it would take to sustain a character. I never understand why other people do it in forums. If you want to play a character, there are plenty of opportunities. I never understand when people say other people online are not real, either. Well, except that some of them aren't, I guess.

    What type of persona would you create online if you could start over. Many people here already have other accounts tied to their "name" and also have met people. I've lost any of that "no one knows me online, hee hee" thing. If I were going to start a persona over again I wonder what I would go with. It might be fun to go back to "unknown" again.

    Suggestions:

    What would you be?
    Name?
    Where would you live?
    How far would you get into it?
    I tried it once.
    I left a group for a year-- a whole year.
    Came back under another username.
    I was "busted" right and left.

    I KNOW that's YOU Jag.
    Who the fuck are you kidding, I KNOW that's YOU!

    Lol.

    It's not about a username, it's about how you communicate.

    It's true, some of them aren't, yeu can never tell if they're being totally truthful or not, though yeu can often get an idea.

    Thing is... people in REALITY are... well... not 'real' either. We all have our masks to wear, and in public, we often put on a few based on the situation. If anything, when yeu're annonymous, and have noone to answer to, it's more likely that the mask will come off and yeur true colours will be shown.

    In practice, I've found I learn far more about the 'real' person online, than I do IN PERSON.

    And I know I'm this way myself; I'm shy and reserved in person, I won't speak often, I won't give much information out, and I definately won't get into a big fight/debate most of the time, not that I don't want to, but I worry whot people will think of me, worry of my position, I think better in text than spoken, and many other factors. Overall, I just don't really do very well in interpersonal relationships in person. As such though, the 'real' me has a much easier time comming out when not locked away by fear and obligation, and whot yeu see here is about as close to 'real' as yeu'll ever get. There may be minor inconsistancies here and there with reality, as is always the case, we tend to build our online persona to be an image of our true inner self, or perhaps, idealized self, rather than 'real' self which often isn't really all that 'real' at all.

    In any case, a friend is a friend, whether yeu see them in person every day, or chat with them in a block of text behind a computer. Either way, yeu can still care, regardless. And yeu can learn alot about them in both ways that yeu may not in the other method.

    I don't recall saying TypoC was full of narcissists, but I do remember saying that TypeC is full of aspies.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Oh shit. I meant Victor.

    (stupid Intuitard moment).

    sorry.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Don't talk about yourself in the third person. It is narcissistic.

    The charade however felt a little disingenuous so I stopped. She got killed in a horrible car crash one day out of the blue, they never found the body..
    That's because she didn't actually die.
