I have had a few identities on this forum,
Do you mean you were pretending to be someone you're not? I've stopped doing that a long time ago! At first it was curiousity, then it became a second nature, and eventually I took it too far. So I guess that's my useless advice to everyone on the internet; Just be yourself and don't be ashamed.
never been abusive or vulgar, well maybe only once!
So you've never cussed behind your screen? Have you atleast *thought* somebody was being an a-hole once or twice?
There are some real genuine people on this forum, and some really interesting conversations, a bit like a family really.
I know it is only a forum but of course it is real as people have real feelings.
I think some people aren't really aware of that sometimes, but I guess we all have to learn the hard way..
