Well, since this is the day to talk about Catspaw, I WILL say I didn't expect him to have a broad Southern accent.

And Gawd help me, even though I know Big Mick is 100% Amurrican, I DID expect him to have an IRISH accent!!

Sure and Begorrah.

Rick

I am generally more or less the same, but as Naes rightly points out, the medium makes the difference at times. One on one with friends I rarely get too nutso and enjoy the listening and the easy camaraderie. My sailing partner of many years and I would often spend hours with fewer than 10 words spoken.

But as the audience increases I get more into the spirit of games and quick reponses or outrageousness. Maybe its the latent class clown thing or something. Add in a few folks who can be either ribbed or embarassed and I'm on. Its all me, just at different times. I think that's true here too.

On some threads with only limited interest and few participants, I'm a lot more reserved than on one that's likely to draw a crowd. Its not so much an "image" or a "persona" as it is different ways of reacting to different situations.

Spaw -- oh yeah, one more thing Cincinnati....

I've only met one mudcatter ... and he is just as sincere and helpful in real life as he is 'on-line' ... I find him to be much sweeter and yes... even a bit shy in the real world. LL

I've met a few 'Catters and generally you are seeing the real thing here. Some are more reserved in real life but that is as would be expected owing to the nature of the medium.

I.M.,

from what they've projected on the forum

My experience has been that very few people here "project" a persona of themselves on this forum.

Do you?

Since I took WYSIWYG as my Mudcat name, I suppose I would hope that this is true of me, and I think nearly everyone who has taken the time to get to know me (including some who had flamed me once upon a time) would say that it is.

One thing implied in my name, BTW, is that what one chooses to see if often all they "get." You might want to think about it from that viewpoint for a bit.

I was once told, by someone I had met online and then in person, that I was the most consistent between my online and in-person "personalities" of anybody they had ever met.

I took it as a compliment.

Well I've met about thirty five now, and most are pretty consistent with their Cyber-face.

Little Hawk is much quieter and reserved than he is around here.

Carol C. seems shyer in person.

Peter T is funnier.

Catspaw is MUCH MORE RESERVED!

Bert is MUCH MORE ENGLISH!

I swear a LOT more (but in a harmless way!) and often play the fool to get laffs and loosen folks up.

Jeri is shy in person and VERY smart (as she is on MC)

Everyone else seems 'bout the same to me.

There used to be a poster on the wall at work that said:

I know you think you understood what I said
the problem is ... What I said is not what I meant

definitly one for those of us ( myself included) that suffer from foot in mouth and brain out of gear disease

I've had neither contradictions nor unpleasant surprises when meeting any Mudcatters face-to-face, at least not yet. Say, Idle Musings, why don't you join, so we can get to know you?

I've had the opposite experience. Most of the Mudcatters I've met have had personalities that were consistent with the personality they seem to project on screen.

Reasons why they don't match up may include:
--They don't feel that comfortable writing in a style which experesses their personalities. I have a feeling some of our more serious, business-like members may actually be a bit shy. They may posses no personal warmth whatsoever, but they may just not feel comfortable expressing it.
--Your interpretation could be off. It's extremely easy to attibute qualities to a person from their writing. It's very hard to tell what a person really meant unless they meant exactly what they said. There's nothing else there, but I think it's human nature to fill in motives, emotions, personaltiy traits, etc. If you actually know the person, you may have a chance of being right. If you don't, you're more likely to be wrong.

There've been several occasions when I've wondered why some (all?) Mudcatters seem so different when you meet them from what they've projected on the forum. Question:

Is what you "see" on the screen, REALLY what you get, when someone meets you in person, or talks to you on the phone?
