Swith to the European model where social gatherings are conducted in pubs, nightclubs, crackhouses, the bong and public parks.

I just want to know why all you people want to socialize in person, when there is a perfectly good internet right at home.

So I can punch people in the face when they make their stupid comments in meatspace.

I`ll restate and formulate my response in a more understandable way.

When meeting people, debating and socialising on the internet one is more likely to encounter verbal abuse and to exchange verbal abuse and to engage in the kind of behavior that would simply be seen as outright antisocial in meatspace.
The screen at which we all stare here somehow act like a block that prevents us of staring into the eyes of actual people, it prevents us from reading the emotions and reactions of a person first hand. It therefor makes it easier for us to ignore or forget the fact that we are engaging with an actualy human being. The concept that every human being is to be treated with dignity is often lost in social exchanges on the internet.

I therefor need to engage with people also on a close level to treat people in a way in which I would want to be treated myself.

Also, you can't have swing parties online.

Just one question. What is a 'meatspace'? That's the bit that confused me. It sounds like a gay brothel.

RE: Strip Mall Churches
They have stores here in the strip malls called "Condoms To Go" (which is only slightly disturbing when you consider "is that for here or to go?"). I would love to find a church in one of those malls and get a photo of that.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy
