    The fallacy in this is that all people are real, and the term IRL, or "in real life" is a bit of a misnomer; reason being: the internet is a place; all people are real, whether you meet/interact with them on the internet or any other way, and have real lives; and that everything that happens in life is real, whether it happens on the internet, or any other place. So, anything that happens in life, wherever it happens is real, thus real life. So everything that happens, happens IRL.

    The same people that are on the Internet are the same people that are everywhere else.

    To be honest I'm feeling a little superior because you misspelled pretentious in the thread title
    So I guess you're right

    Srsly though, 20k is something special. My goodness, it'd take me 2 days to figure out which post to waste it on. Probably. Seems fitting considering the context of this thread, I'm mean is your epeen really so gigantic you'd actually spend more than a few minutes trying to figure out who to stick it in?

    True, but also there is fallacy in not really knowing who one is talking to on the internet....thanks to the people who disguise themeselves...are not who they say they, come on as many people on one site... etc.....
    I am not saying you or I do this, but many people do....so it is hard to have any trust with people without the other dimensions of their being to have sense of them as in real life...all that is on the computer is the type written word.

    In my personal experience, all people are not real at all.

    People primp and pose and pretend to be shit that they are not.

    So I hafta wonder: Where do you get this shit? :)

    I mean, sure, you can say that all people are real as far as who and what they REALLY are...but how many people let the REST of us see who they really are? THAT is MY definition of being real. And in my experience there are a LOT of pretenders, but very few folks being real.

    I am prolly not being totally real myself...but I am trying at least...

    And being real is not just sumthun you do like a fucking Eagle Scout project...it is something that takes lifetimes of fucking hard work. So therefore to denigrate it to nothing as you seem to be doing seems almost...I dunno...kinda Satanic. To be honest.

    I prefer to be extraordinary I mean fuck keeping it real! Keeping it real would have have us all talking about how we washed our balls and junk in the showers :D yeah that's totally dope, but nobody gives a shit about what y'all do in every day life. You gotta mix up yo whole style and keep 'em guessing!

  13. Not really, this kind of format, messageboards, are a rarer thing nowadays.

    The alternatives are places like reddit, where it's a free for all, or Facebook, which annoys me no end,

    The same people that are everywhere else? I'm glad reddit types, or idiot daily post pictures of my lunch types aren't here

    People don't get more real when posing as how they really would like to be perceived.

    Never had that thought when looking at a person acting tough, or when someone's attention whoring, or when someone tries to impress someone of the other gender?

    considering the OP's past contributions, this bit of silliness isn't surprising.

    I'm pretty much the same with people online as I am in person, a bit of an asshole, but usually right about what I'm being an asshole over, so I leave people in the quandary "What a fucking ass, but he is right...damn!"
    a lot of that's been going on at the new job lately where I posses decades of experience compared to the months that the people in charge possess.

    Bottom line is: Why fault anybody for being who/what they are? Why expect folks to be perfect? Are YOU perfect? It seems obvious you are not. ;)

    If you are REALLY real...then why not engage folks in REAL discussions, instead of getting up on your high horse and acting superior? :) Innit? ;)

    So who is posing here...see...

    Some of us are not real. Some of us are just coded robots that respond to keywords. I have proof..........
