    Well, unless you're a piss-headed old curmudgeon like, well, me....

    The adoption of personae on the net (or elsewhere) has never attracted
    me, I don't even dress up for Hallowe'en. I suppose I'm scary enough in
    my plain vanilla....

    But, I can certainly see where that would be fun for someone else, and as
    long as it's done in fun, then that's fine, if I may be judgmental for a
    change. It's when the cloak of anonymity is used for intentional
    deception that I wonder where the fun stops and the rape (for lack of a
    finer term) begins.
