Does it matter that there is a real person behind that screen?

    To me it does. Very much so. Not so to a lot of poster's though. People can be very unkind.

    If the people I communicate with online were drones and/or not real, I'd have wasted many, many hours making the acquaintance of someone very precious to me...and there's no telling how furious I would be.

    It matters a lot, however, if it's a corporate site, I'm convinced there is never someone on the other side of the screen. Even here, I am often responding to a question when the other person is not online. Unfortunately, I don't sleep like a normal person (whomever that is), so I respond at weird times (which could be 3 a.m.)

    It matters to me. I conduct myself online as I do in person.

    It isn't limited to SH in my opinion. We have become such a depersonalized society.

    I do my best to not say anything that could hurt or offend anybody. Because you may just see a name and an avatar, but there's actually a living person behind it. You have to consider other peoples' feelings, even though this is the internet. I'm not saying I haven't replied to people with not nice comments sometimes (Which was wrong, but I'm human, I make mistakes). I don't intentionally try to hurt anybody and I apologize if I cross the line. I don't take being on this site as: 'oh they don't know who I am, so I can say whatever I want and not be accountable.' I wouldn't say anything on here to anybody that I wouldn't ever say to them in person.

    It doesnt matter to me as long as that person is not trying to track me down. That would be creepy.
