Re: Online Text Relationships

Probably this is because I am a skeptic when it comes to relationships. For a skeptic there would have to be something that is regarded more 'real' than something else. Usually it revolves around verifiable experience, i.e., 'I have to see it before I believe it.' For example, there are skeptics wh...

Re: Toilet Paper Won't Help With This

In what manner do we 'not allow' those in power to re-impose their long-running...

A few words on the "virus"

It is an 'operation'. Where it's coming from, who is behind it, I don't know. Remember that in the past few years it's been chaotic - on purpose - and this 'virus' is part of that. It's another 'test' to see how far things can be taken. Until the public at large realizes this not only about the viru...

Re: Online Text Relationships

"It seems to me though that what you describe is in no way qualitatively different than having a face to face relationship. It is only more pronounced because you are so aware you only have verbal cues and no bodily ones." - Lacking f2f cues, text communication can be limited, ambiguous and an easy...

Re: Hello everybody

No one has to learn programming to participate in the forum. So that others understand the 'programming' reference, it was in response to your wanting to put a very lengthy piece into numerous post segments one after the other. I suggested a separate page where you could post/link your entire essay ...
