I've found people in person are usually much easier to get along with than their online alter-ego.

Anonymity brings out bad things in people.

I would like to think I’m pleasant to play with. Can get caught up in my own head and not be super social on the course, but as long as your not one of the people that plays as a purely social thing I tend to get along with most...

Hopefully online as well, I make an effort not to come across as snarky jerk.

The lack of repercussions bring out people's true colors. We need more dueling.

To paraphrase the Great and Powerful Robert Anton Wilson: If there were more bloody noses, there'd be a lot less world war...

Ask any of the DGCR members I've met and listed in my profile. Pretty much all of them said meeting me in real life is basically what they expected from what they've seen/read on DGCR.

I can't say whether it's good or bad, but I'm very WYSIWYG. My avatar fits my philosophy.

I think there is a healthy respect for the capacity of the other person to reach over and punch you in the face "in person" - you can't really do that online.

I try to be my authentic self all the time, which can get mistaken for being a d-bag because I'm opinionated, honest, and pretty direct. I also don't really care what anyone thinks of me, which removes any fear of backlash. As a result, I generally struggle to co-exist with sensitive people because they (tend to) focus on feelings.

I am most decidedly less of an ass in person.
