I'm so much cooler online

Are you familiar with the song "Online" by Brad Paisley? It came out a few years ago and tells the story of a guy's alter ego - his online persona. Are you cooler online?

Since I know I have a post coming up in the morning, I doubt too many people are going to to see this post to make much comment, but want to start a discussion on meeting people online.

Have you done it?

Would you do it?

There are several factors that go into me starting this discussion. Anyone willing to participate in a discussion or will it be a rambling monologue?  Let me know!
