As an online community, it is safe to say that many of you have met people you have gotten along with and others that you have not.

I would LOVE if some of you would help out and answer the following questions dealing with interaction between people online & in the 'real' world.

A) Have you formed opinions on members based on comments made by themselves?

B) Have you formed opinions on people based on comments made by other members?

C) Does your online persona reflect that of your offlne persona?

D) Have you ever had issues with a person you have solely known online?

E) Do you believe that people feel more free to speak in an online forum than they are in reality?

I'm doing a paper on Internet culture and if any of you can answer truthfully it would help a lot!

Thanks..

A) Have you formed opinions on members based on comments made by themselves?

~~~ Yes... of course.... If someone online states that they're racist for example, or uses racial comments..then i conclude that they're racist... is that what you mean? :hmmm:

B) Have you formed opinions on people based on comments made by other members?

~~~Its hard NOT to take what OTHER ppl say about others and somewhat think about it...rumors always spread and stuff is alwayss being talked... i guess thats why Gossip Magazines are so popular.. :hmmm: .... I DO however wait till I meet or talk to the person personally before forming a final opinion.... :mrgreen:

C) Does your online persona reflect that of your offlne persona?

~~~Yes...Definately..... I never understoood why someone would put up a front online and be TOTALLLY different online.... ive met a few ppl like that... and i just find it weird.... :bangin:
D) Have you ever had issues with a person you have solely known online?

~~~Of course.... im sick of the ppl that say its "JUST ONLINE" ... yes.. we're just on the computer.... but to me...its just like arguing with someone over the phone.... If im disagreeing with u.... and u disagree with me..and we get into a debate.... then thats what it is..a DEBATE/DISAGREEMENT.!! lol... im not just gonna brush it off and not confront it because "ITS JUST ONLINE" ... plusss... its not like thesee ppl are random ppl ill never meet.... they're ppl i will potentially meet or have already met... :mrgreen:

E) Do you believe that people feel more free to speak in an online forum than they are in reality?

~~~Yes...I DO believe some ppl are more out-spoken online than in person.... I like to believe that im the same online and offline...... but there are some ppl that ive met that are diff offline than on... ... and its not necessarily a bad thing... they're just more out-going i guess .. or talk more online than when u meet them in person... :mrgreen:




I liked these questions Nora...... :grindance:.... made me think.. lol.. :lol:

yes

B) Have you formed opinions on people based on comments made by other members?
yes

C) Does your online persona reflect that of your offlne persona?
no, especially when interacting in a new place (forum/mb/etc). They don't know the real me until we talk (online) for a long time, and never with general members in forums.

D) Have you ever had issues with a person you have solely known online?
yes

E) Do you believe that people feel more free to speak in an online forum than they are in reality?
yes esp. if some1 comes from a traditional culture, they can be more relaxed to air all their views online than reality w/out worrying about ppl in their community judging them

A) Have you formed opinions on members based on comments made by themselves?
yes i have.. i mean how can u not?? epecially when members tend to talk about themselves a lot and wat tehy enjoy or what they don't liek then u can't help but for an opinion on them.. :mrgreen:

B) Have you formed opinions on people based on comments made by other members?
yes i have..but only when i know that the person is a reliable source and nhot heard it second or third hand..if it's something serious that affects me then i form my opinion on them..but if ti's somethign that has nothing to do w/ me which has happened a few times i dont really care for it. .. i can still think that certain person is wrong but it wouldnt bother me as much as if it was about me.. omg i make no sense :lol:

C) Does your online persona reflect that of your offlne persona?
yes it does.. i've met a ton of ppl from avn.. from all over the country..and only once have i been told that im not the same.. :mrgreen:

D) Have you ever had issues with a person you have solely known online?
yes i have.. u can only get pushed so far.. and like don said who cares if ur online..that doesnt mean the ppl arent real.. :mrgreen:

E) Do you believe that people feel more free to speak in an online forum than they are in reality?
oh of course! especially the ppl who can't back up anything they say online, offline.. ur basically hiding behind ur comp screen.so ucan say anyting.. i think ppl take advantage of that.. and since u can make up names and all this info about urself ur free to say anyting u want.. :mrgreen:
