Online vs. Reality

You can tell so little about a person from their online persona. There are folks who "duke it out" online but meet in person and discover they really like each other. Other folks "click" online but find they can't stand each other when they meet in person.

After over 20 years of being online I know enough to wait until I get the "full picture" before "pronouncing judgement" on them. As a result, I find it somewhere between frustrating and annoying when someone "pronounces judgement" on me without a full dataset or old in-person data.
