Ask Ron, he is responsible for her, course, I don't mind.

fugitive is my moniker all over the net, since '99 when I got my 1st puter(486/66)
the reason was, to be anonymous, I didn't know then that ones email is on the headers in a lot of places.
I wanted the name to be different and cool.
I could feel empathy with David Kimball, and the real Dr.

guess it's time to try and explain my ID name. It has been my yahoo ID for 4 years. When I was picking it every form of Marie Dubois, marie, mdubois and so on was gone, at that moment there happened to be an old Raven printer in my line of vision so in my impatience..... md are my initials. I know that's pretty lame, but someone once told me they thought it meant ravin' mad.
Now I simply keep it because it's my yahoo ID and makes it easier to just have the same one everywhere.

I like photo avatars because I think it's great to have an actual visual idea of the people we are talking with. So much of the Internet is very annoymous. Of course it IS possible you are just looking at one of my client's photos.. maybe I'm really a one armed man......

It's funny... My husband once said to me that we are the pioneers of a new type of human communication. He once asked if it made a difference if I knew what the person I was talking to looked like. I thought long and hard about the answer and honestly came up with NO. It mattered more what they were saying and how we interacted. He then said - so, you could be talking to a computer programmed with responses and it wouldn't make a difference? Again, I thought about this and said NO.

Think about it.

Sounds strange but do we really know the people we chat with? Or is what we get from those relationships more valueable?

P.S. No I haven't been smoking any strange cigarettes! LOL

Can't agree with that Lisa. Since I am Very visually oriented, everything gets judged first by the way it looks and then the other stuff. If I'm writing to someone whos
picture is a lizard, it will definitly affect the way I perceive that person.

Lisa,

I agree with you. I have made many online friends while taking courses these past four years. People seem to evaluate others by their actions and the spirit of cooperation was pleasantly surprising. That same atmosphere exists on RetouchPro.
