I know the basics. I wouldn't be able to do anything radical though.

I wouldn't be fussed with any fancy schmancy stuff as long as we could post without advertisements and downtime.

I know a tiny bit. Studied it briefly last year. But I actually have a whole load of college work to be doing at the minute anyways so I don't really have the time...

We all construct ourselves as something we want to be seen as online. That's why online arguments are always quite comical, because really it isn't 'you' arguing at all. An example of this idealistic representation of ourselves is when we get to know someone online, and it is always ultimately a little bit of a letdown when it comes to meeting in real life. You feel the person you have 'known' for so long is so different that you have to actually get to know them again.

I'm sure I'd be very surprised if I met you lot as to what you are all like, as you would with me!

Online I can take the time to think about what I'm saying and correct it if need be. Offline my mouth runs much faster than my brain does and I usually end up on some sort of nonsensical tangent within minutes.
It's much worse when I'm drunk, the amount I babble goes into overdrive and I actually find myself able to talk to strangers instead of being practically paralysed by shyness.
So yeah, I'd agree I'm different offline. I'm much more of an idiot.

I think I come across as fairly unintelligent offline lol
Like Raine says, my brain can't keep up, I usually only think of something valid/intelligent/interesting to say after the moment has passed.

It's brilliant that we're in a post-modern age where we have the freedom to pick and choose aspects of ourselves that we want others to see.

Online, I expect I come across as pretty... well, a bit of a perfectionist? A little outspoken.

Offline, I hold a plethora of similar ideals but I'm more, well, human. Like, I wouldn't have verbally said everything I just said then. Interesting age we're in.

Well, I'm pretty outspoken usually, and I let people know when I think they're being annoying. Most of my friends would say I'm an arrogant, heartless son of a bitch, which would probably be quite close to the truth. But I like to think I have some redeeming qualities. Otherwise, would I have friends to tell me stuff like that? Wink

Perhaps consciously, you think so. However, subconsciously, we filter out the aspects of our lives that we don't want others to hear. That's the whole point of Facebook, and why it is so popular. Anyone else been punched in the bollocks to chat to a girl online, think she looks good in pictures, only to meet them and discover they lack personality or looks? Our idealistic representations of ourselves online is also somewhat a downfall.

I'm not saying everyone does this consciously anyway, as we all do to a certain extent.

Yeah, it does make me wonder why I speak to you.
