I present myself online as I do in real life, I see no need to change "who I am" for anyone, really, and as such have decided not to construct a "persona" for internet usage.

I think many of us here present ourselves as we are, saying what we think, maybe sometimes a little nicer, maybe sometimes we say things here we wouldn't to someone's face. It feels to me like a safe place and because of that I really value this board. I have been on boards where that wasn't the case though.

I'm with Gilly on that one. I, too, think that most of us on this forum behave pretty much as we do in "meatworld" as Ebon calls it.

Part of why we do is perhaps the result of the blowups we've experienced on Those Two Other Forums Which Shall Not Be Named from which many of us came.

I toyed around a bit way back when I first went online in the mid-90's with pretending to be someone I'm not. Not only didn't I feel right about doing that, but it was just too difficult to keep my story details consistent, like the old saw, "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember what you've said before."
