Subject: RE: Mudcat Friendships
Has anybody made the experience "wow, in person s/he is quite different from how s/he appears at Mudcat!"? Similar effects are known from other sites, often caused by obvious personal interests such as commercial promotion or erotic dating. Leaving these aside, is there a difference between "oral" and "digital" appearance? And do you feel (as I do) that sometimes the "digital person" can be even more "real" than the "oral" one?

"His personal acquaintances describe him as a nice guy," we read in reports about spree killers, terrorists, child molesters, and other monstrous criminals.
