Allo, nice people who keep swinging by here for some reason. Hope you’re all having a nice day and whatnot. Me… I’m kind of zoned out and distracted today. It’s a pretty big deal to me, so it’s not something that I’m quite content to discuss here in the open. But, to my amusement, I have friends who seem to think that I’m significantly more open here than on my private blog… it’s quite odd to me. 🙂
See, I’m sure those of you who don’t particularly know me have noticed that I’ve not named myself. I’ve not given you so much as an email address to contact me on, or pointed out any messenger names. I’ve listed a Twitter and a few other blogs, which can then give clues to other places I might be found, but it’s still not particularly identifying. Therefore, I feel comfortable giving my opinions and thoughts on things; I’m as anonymous as I can make myself without lying about who I am. I feel… safe after a fashion. Though obviously, I don’t abuse my little ‘safe’ zone to be nasty or cruel; we’ve seen how well that works with all the totally legit and appropriate defamation cases that have cropped up in recent years!
But that is definitely something I’ve wondered about over the years – why do people think that relative anonymity gives them the right to be a total dickwad (also, love that image to death)? Granted, I’ve got a pretty bad honesty compulsion going on; anonymity is about as far as I can personally about covering who I am and where specifically I live. *chuckles* So it makes sense that I have a very difficult time understanding people who lie about who they are, or abuse others for jollies because they think they won’t get caught. But then, I also never have been able to understand trying to change who you are to fit in; if anything, I opt to be a chameleon to be left blessedly alone. I suspect that’s an extension of the introvert versus extrovert debate, but there you go.
Wahey train of thought, you escaped me! I’m sure more could be said to make this more cogent and interesting, but meh…. it’s almost time for me to mosey on down the road. 😉
