I understand where you are coming from Saria and respect your views on this... I guess I just don't relate to taking what someone on a message board says so internally that it cripples you as a person in real life. Sure, I think people can become friends online, learn interesting and new things..but I don't think people's random comments on the net should be something a person defines their whole worth on or lose their sense of self over.
But I do understand for some people..it's different. I'm just saying it doesn't make sense to me. I guess sort of like to "ignore" someone doesn't make sense to you.
