    I'm generally kind online but can be a arse at times, same IRL.

    I'm very different. When older posts crop up I'm always thinking that the person who wrote it doesn't "sound" like me.

    I think it's because in real life you have to make an effort which causes a person to be different. Online I'm lazier.

    I would say so. I speak as I find, online and in real life. Most of the people that I have met from the forums have been just as I expected them to be too.

    as for myself i would say i'm pretty much the same but i am a lot more direct and forward online. Offline I need to get to know people better before I can be myself but online I tend to just be myself from the outset. Sounds a bit odd really :)

    I'm just as much of a negative/cynical git IRL too. :)

    I'm pretty sure I'm the same online as off, I might however be a little bit taller than I appear on screen. I guess you'd have to ask people who have met me whether that is true or not though.

    Im always myself whatever the occasion .. I don't see point in these people who lie online because as soon as you meet them your going to know that they weren't truthful.
