I was browsing around reading random articles and came across this one on Anonymity online.
I don’t somehow relate to this at all myself. Personally, I am a person who is nicer to strangers; does not matter if they are those I know in the world wide web or some one I meet in person. Call me stupid, but I also take people for their words as such. I have been told by many of my friends that I must not be so naive. Either that the case or people I have come across in blogosphere have been exceptionally nice to me. I consider that they are really that. They have expressed their opinions, their advice and even their criticisms. That is honest enough for me. So, are we all the exceptions to this split personality that supposedly crops up online or in any anonymous situation?
Just wondering! Or probably as I have already written, I am being naive; or just way too trusting. Guess I am lucky that I have not come across such characters and I sure am not one 🙂
Thanks to all I know and don’t (those who guard their identity too 😉 ) for being nice and not nasty 😀
One thing though, I do have the “online disinhibition effect”. I seem to tell more about myself here than anywhere else!! especially in response to the tags I take up or in my comments and of course all my entries. 🙂
