Laughing literally out loud. Checking out some of the replies we get, not just here at Mylot, but anywhere around the net. I have noticed that those who use GH characters in their avatars often have non GH viewers puzzled. They sometimes think that is actually a picture of the poster. Tee HEE. Got a message over at FOTKI.com the other day in response to a REBECCA HERBST avatar I had been using. The guy actually propositioned me thinking that was a pic of me. I WISH--but no. Open your eyes this is a General Hospital site OR a General Hospital discussion site. The Steve Burton ones get a lot of interesting remarks too. Most guys could only dream about looking as good as that, seriously. Still think Mylot should put the discussion category with the email sent to our inboxes. Too funny!!!

Don't you like to be anonymous even when you have a photo for your avatar? I have photos of my animals that I change every once in a while. I do not like the idea of my photo all over the inter net.

I hear ya there. I seldomly post my pic on the net and hardly ever have used my own photo has an avatar. I guess it would deoend on the site I am on and the amount of people viewing. Thanks for responding!

I feel the same way. I just don't feel comfortable putting my picture online. Who knows who is lurking and saving pictures for their own personal, sick use. I've seen some catty fights on message boards before where users would take a poster's pic and draw or write something humiliating on it. No way is that going to happen to me.

I have not heard about fights over pictures. Why don't people just grow up? I just do not think the whole world need to know who I am or what I look like. I do not want my neighbor to know what I am saying on the internet. I am not saying anything bad I just do not want them knowing what I am saying.

Maybe I need tyo find a GH hottie that I want to be to act as my alter ego! Maybe I will start getting more responses if they think I am a hottie. I really like the look on Becky's face in your avatar. On an unrelated subject, sort of, Do you know if Becky sells the clothes that she designs? I would love to own one.

Ok, this is embarrassing, but at the start of social websites like Friendster and Myspace, I joined as a certain soap character and became involved with role playing, 'talking' to other soap characters on the sites. Since the character I created a page for wasn't that popular of a soap character, I often got a lot of messages from guys thinking she was real and sending the best, yet lamest, pick up lines they had. I think it's even more funny when I sarcastically replied and talked about some outlandish story about 'myself' (the soap character who was thought to be an alien when she first came on the show) and they still weren't turned off. Weird, actually.
