In this day and age, there are things that used to be acceptable which are no longer so. One in particular is the tired repeated use of "I'm different online than I am in real life". Bitch, the entire world, including your fridge, has access to the Internet. Online is as real as everything else. Being an ass online makes you an ass, period. You don't have two sets of personalities; if who you are on a computer is vastly different than who you are at home, you're just hypocrite.

Thank you.

Meh.
Whatevs. If you're so adamant about it, organise a march.
Srsly. WTF are you to judge people who like to fuck around.
Not everyone is self absorbed to the point of not being able to step out of themselves a little.

My two cents.

I think most people you're referring to are rather not self-aware/conscious than (mindfully) hypocrite.

If you liked to fuck around, you'd also do it in real life.

The fact that some people only do it behind a computer and uses the "I'm on the internet, it's not real" excuse to thrash absolutely everyone is what I think should no longer be accepted :)

If you troll everywhere, fine. You're a troll. At least you're consistent/honest about it.

I concur. Mark, what are you talking about, you like to fuck around in real life as well. Maybe you do it moreso on here but still. :)

I figure online, people let their restraints down and show their emotions a bit more than in person. Yet, it's still them writing these words.

i'm trolling a lot. Tryin' not to be all so serious, most of the time. Better for my health and my mood, better for the people around me. And i do fuck around with my friends, but not the same way i do here. They (my friends) are important to me. And i am to them.

You guyz are casual internet buddies.

I should have been more specific, I think.

If you act like an ass online and do the same anywhere else and accept the fact that people will think you're an ass, it's 100% fine. No problem with that. If you're a troll in both place, same thing.

If however you're a total douche online and then act surprised/defensive if someone suddenly starts thinking you're an ass, there's a problem. Call it blatant stupidity, hypocrisy, being unaware, whatever. Your brain is doing this. The medium doesn't matter. You're being duplicitous. I'll react that way.

The worst case scenario I've personally witnessed is person x thrashing person y "as a joke, because he's just trolling". Person y taking it personally and trying to counter-attack person x. Person x not understanding why there's a sudden (real) attack against him. Bitch, you asked for it.

Lol, now your point is clear. And i think you're quite right.

But yet again: if you overlook me at a party because i said something in here that didn't please you, instead of maybe having a nice mano-a-mano chat about that and clear things a little... Will/should i give a fuck?

You seem in need of friends, so I would assume yes.

Things aren't always what they seem to be DrNyarlathotep. I just like to meet new people every once in a while. But if you don't like me, for whatever reason(s)... Why the fuck should i care? Ça m'enlève tu quelque chose? Est-ce que c'est comme si on se connaissait depuis la ptite école?

Mais à la base, je crois que la plupart du monde vaut la peine d'être rencontré. On a tous d points de vues différents, pi c le fun de chat ek kekun avec qui j'ai absolument rien en commun, ne serait-ce que pour acquérir une plus grande ouverture d'esprit.

I fail to see how my rant about people seeing the Internet and the World as two separate entities where different personalities are accepted somehow became a thread about how well you're liked.

But if you so desperately require my attention as to start nonsensical questions, I'll take your query and answer it!

I assume that in this case you consider yourself to be X and my person to be Y.

You're stating that, imagining you've trolled me and I got upset enough to trash you, you wouldn't care.

Okay, I have absolutely no problem with that. Moreso, I'm stating that the opposite is what would be hypocritical. So I fail to see how that's a rebuttal to anything I've stated.

There you go.

L'art de scrapper cke j'dis en fesant des présomptions. Ctait à titre d'exemple. J'suis sûrement pas le seul ds mon monde. Que les autres disent leurs façons de penser, c'est cool. Là j'ai dit la mienne. People don't like me much in here, and that's ok, ils m'ont pas rencontré encore. But that's beside the point.

I was reffering to how serious you/i/they think this is. And how some people bring the internet b.s. in real life, or real life b.s. on here (People against cutterhead, as an example). I'm sure, even tho Mark is probably a douchebag in real life too (i like you too), that he's different from Moloch. Actually, he claimed it himself many times.

imo real fun is this :



unless it can be put on a big screen for anybody to laugh , its really not impressive laughing matter. ppl still think nobody knows whats going around in their computer so they hide behind their ignorance imo . cant really crack sombody's head open or beat them up to the point of reason , but of course the same doesnt work with thoses ppl , so my guess is draw an example and others will follow, even if we're led to think we are alone and the rest of the bunch are the rotten apples... anyhow enjoy this clip , i can never not laugh when i hear it.

But basically, that brings us back to the original reason why this thread exists. Your opinion and how you react to people on here is not a product of an imaginary online persona. Ultimately, regardless of the fact you might want to pass yourself as a 14 year old schoolgirl, your reactions are a product of your real personality, no matter how good an actor you assume you are.

What is it about the Internet though that somehow makes it okay for you to be a douche? See that's the problem with people.

If I called you and told you to go fuck yourself, would it be okay?
If I was live on TV and told the world you were the flakiest douche there was, would it be okay?
If you read one of those gossip magazines and it stated that Max_x2 has a micro dick and is laudable, would you take it seriously?
Why is it that the internet is somehow seen as less serious than other mediums? The bane of responsability is the same everywhere, buddy. As long as you agree to reap what you sow, everything's okay. The day you get offended that someone took you seriously for something you "said in jest" with no obvious way of knowing about it, you lose all credibility/respect from people like me.

I hope this drama was entertaining to you all!
