yeah,i believe it's the easiest way of expressing your feelings also,but not only the internet,also every way that doesn't imply being in front of that person,such as sms..letters...it's like having a diary,where you can say everything you want..and also internet has nothing personal...it seems like you aren't even talking to a real person,that's what i usually feel anyway:)

Some people will tell you it doesn't matter what you say to others online. They think that becuse there is SOME degree of anonymity it's OK to be rude or obnoxious. I forget who said it , but it goes something like this... "Your character is defined by what you do when you think no one is looking."

It's easier to say private things on the internet to strangers rather than in person to people you know..even if they judge you, you don't know them and will never see them...So what does it matter?

I guess it's because no one really knows you and you can speak your mind better when you write it down rather than saying it.. because some people are just too shy or scared to say things out loud!
