The Online Identity

Has anyone ever wondered about the truthfulness of online profiles that appear in chat rooms and myspace accounts? Perhaps the internet gives people the kind of anonymity they need to express the internal desires they would otherwise not have the courage to display themselves. On the other hand, many may be preying on the desires of others to lure them into some sort of money making scheme. Why can't people just be proud of who they are ... no matter what anybody else thinks? Using fake pictures and making up stories about yourself merely perpetuates the problem many have in their real lives ... they are not happy with themselves and need to exaggerate or fabricate the truth to make people like them. Is that the kind of person you would like to call a "friend"? If they don't believe in themselves ... they'll never believe in you.
