    With everybody laughing... I am not sure how it wasn't funny.

    I answered sorta, because I know I would be more aggressive in real life at certain times. Id like to think I would talk the same but thats probably impossible. I do know that I sound harsher or colder online, to many years of writing impersonal reports. People cant see body language or facial expressions that shows whats really behind the words...Oh well its the net we all have to deal with it right

    There is no difference between who I am here and who I am in person.

    No, way different!

    First off I don't normally talk politics in person. Secondly, I will sugercoat my opinions in person to not offend anyone and build good social relations. On the internet i couldn't care less what they think of me. If I meet someone that I can't stand in person, I will just ignore them. On the internet I will keep debunking their argument.

    I also talk differently on chatrooms. I don't have very good internet chatting skills and my chats tend to become somewhat dry. I prefer to talk to people in person.
