About the topic:
I enjoy face to face and internet haps about equally. In fact, a lot of my good friends I've met from previous forums (White Sox).
I use internet for more escapism stuff. I take this place a bit more seriously then other forums where I'd just post animated gifs, be obnoxious, and act the general fool.
I'm pretty similar online/real lyfe though. But in general it's easier to open up to people online. In person it's hard to be given the 2nd chance I think.
If we had a big RPGfan party and I showed up drunk, telling off color jokes I'd probably not win anyone over. If I posted drunk and something lewd it'd probably be deleted or forgotten.
I love the internet.
