There is nothing fake about only using words to express yourself. One could easily argue that it's the purest form of unbiased communication.
What you express on the internet where there is no repercussions like in the "real world" is your true self
, not the one you show to people who you are afraid of, who you depend on, who you can't ever hide from by simply changing a username or email address.
You were a blank canvas to us all. There was no way we can judge you on your gender, height, skin color, looks, hairstyle, manner and quality of dress, or any number of things that lead to innate first impressions that we can't help to have as human beings.
You had your words. Your thoughts. Your wisdom. Your ignorance. Everything that should truly matter. You had the opportunity to express in an unbiased medium just as many great philosophers, poets, politicos, et al. have done in the past.Edited by SolipsismX - 7/10/12 at 10:41pm
