Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth. -Oscar Wilde
I like to think I'm usually friendly and approachable online, not the brightest spark but never abusing my anonymity, because I think I AM a friendly and approachable guy in real life. Some of you may not agree, but your feelings towards me as a TWHL member will pretty much be identical to how you would feel about me in person. I'm fairly open online. More than I should be probably. Some of you may have seen my video blogs on YouTube and noticed that I'm exactly the same way there as I am here, or anywhere else I happen to post.
TWHL used to be full of friendly and respectable users, who posted helpful comments. Of course, some were opinionated and biased but at the same time considerate and open-minded, all regardless of anonymity. Some of these people have moved on, some have become good friends.
I certainly never had to block any TWHL users on Steam three or four years ago, but it's something I have had to do more frequently recently. Sadly, a person who acts like a complete cunt on one website is likely to act like a complete cunt on any other website because they are, in fact, a complete cunt.
I'd leave my mask at the door, but I never brought one.
