    Superman by internet, Clark Kent by real life

    I'm always worried that someone that I know may be monitering what I post on the OTF. Every time I find that great local event that is definitely OTF-worthy I cringe at the notion of someone using this localization to find me out! To me, my secret net-identity is sacred. What 'bout you?

    If someone you knew read all of your posts on the off topic forum, how would they view you (significant other, your friends, your MOM, etc). Would they be shocked? Surprised?

    Basically what I'm saying is, is your behavior on the internet different than that of real life? Do you view the internet as your secret life?

    I know Jigga Scrooge outside of here. I have no problems with him reading whatever I write. It doesn't bother me.

    It only bothers me in the sense that I inheritted a healthy sense of paranoia from my father's side and as such I don't want _anyone_ to know who I am, where I am or what I am doing.

    Sadly I'm just as cookoo in real life as on here, no difference at all really, except when I'm angry I can swear a good bit. I try not to really on here, but it's harder to not when I'm ranting away off the PC.

    And we all know I'm too bloody dippy to keep up any kind of fakeness anyhow, I'd forget what I was doing and look like even more of a butt :lol: Besides, I spent most of my life trying to figure out and be happy with who I am, why the heck would I wanna go and be someone else? :)

    Hell, I wish some peeps I know did read the OTF though, would save me repeating myself about stuff all the time :lol:

    I'm a bit nicer in real life than I am on here. My mom wouldn't be too surprised, though, since I am as obnoxious. In general, I keep my real life off the net and vice versa.

    Some of the people I've spoken about might not be thrilled to read what I've written about them, although--I'm not scared to let people know my "secret identity".

    Nobody knows i play online games and post on forums;i guess some would be surprised and others wouldn't
    Some people i know wouldn't accept some of my ideas or point of views;if i had to speak my mind ,they would be either shocked,surprised or disappointed;what i can't express freely,i bother to yell it online

    My forum name would be instantly recognizable to anyone I knew in real life. I don't think I've said anything on the forums that I wouldn't have said in real life. However, I have acted in very un-wuhan-like ways when I play the game that shall not be named.

    My address is as follows:

    Stan David Hudson
    2611 Moran Street
    Marquette, MI
    49855



    That was probably done wrong. I haven't wrote a letter in so long. Anyway, I hope that answers your question.

    Edit: Well, I guess it doesn't really answer it. It does show my security with my real identity and my superman one. Anyway, I'm a complete idiot in real time as opposed to being just half an idiot.

    I wouldn't mind a bit if anyone I knew read what I posted, I'm exactly the same arrogant bastard outside of the forums.

    I post the same as I am. Most people that log on here that recognize my online name know my real name. Real life and the internet are one and the same to me. It's a part of my RL, and I don't feel the need to hide behind it.

    I dont have a secret indentity...I really dont understand why anyone would. Doesnt make to much sense, why would you be afraid to say things in real life that you say here. Unless, obviously, you are a teenie-bopper and your mother would wash your mouth out.

    People in real life would recognize me by what I say, but not many people know me in real life that well. I talk more about personal me to strangers. Some of you probably know me better than some of my real life friends, since I let few fortunate people know the deep me.
