Response: "To make it short the internet like the real world is full of people with identities that are not what it always seem. The internet makes it harder though because there is no emotional basis on the internet to identity how truly sincere some is on the internet. People on the internet know the behind the screen effects and so they interact differently than in the real world, script kiddies, e-whores, etc., just take it step farther, but what is interesting with them is that words are all they have to capture someone's attention."

Response: "his also depends, but it depends on how they act in real life. One person could be one of the above to many people online, but then to others in real life they can be other things and have people respect them."
