It is easier to have misunderstandings and categorize people without seeing body language and facial expression. Apart from the hard-out scammers and spammers there are probably not a lot of people I would't have a coffee with. Even some that I haven't particularly got on with on here. Sometimes meeting in person changes that perspective while other times it confirms it.

I don't feel particularly saddened by not meeting most of the people on here since I probably would never have met them in real life. Geographical distance would have ensured that we would be unlikely to meet anywhere other than online or by some miraculous random occurrence whilst travelling. So I see it as an opportunity to meet people that have at least one interest in common  - Crypto. People who I would otherwise never have met.

It is as the consequent of cyber world, because people can easily interact with others even they never know them before. However, they who are interacting in cyber perhaps from different culture, it can be known by the word they use in the treating and chatting. Therefore, we should interact and say as good as possible. No matter we are interacting not physically people.

Its great not knowing people physically because you can think of them as being who, ever you like and sometimes is good to have an unformed impression of someone.

I’ve met a couple forum members. It’s always been a great experience. There are lots of troublemakers here who love to stir up trouble any way they can from behind a keyboard, but we all have a unique shared common interest that I think presented in the right atmosphere would likely turn many forum enemies into friends. I know I’d love to share a beer with anyone who loved Bitcoin as much as I do.

Ahh, this I agree with. Anonymity induces cruelty, as well as more primal feelings and behavior. Social boundaries are blurred or non-existent in an online community without clear rules and self-control is non-existent. There've been loads of studies conducted on this, here's an excerpt from Stanford uni:

Quote
On one side, there have been numerous studies done proving that with anonymity, human nature tends to be cruel and self-centered. One such study placed female college students in a space in which their identities were shielded and they were allowed to administer [fake] electrical surges to patients coming in. The study showed that over time, the electrical surges grew in duration especially towards patients who the female college students didn’t like. Just like these female college students became crueler in their shrouded identity, so do many online gamers. Under the assumption that there can be no consequence, many gamers choose to be much more cruel with their online personas then they would ever be face to face with others.
- Stanford article

Girlish vanity aside, it does allow us to look into the minds of people and what they become when there are no consequences for their actions, well, at least they don't endure them. Add destructive behavior to the mix and you've got yourself the typical scammer/cyber criminal. That's why online communities need strict rules, as well as people who actively enforce those rules, as people without social norms and control start acting "bad".

Unbelievable about strangers knowing my real identity. Too many passwords are stolen and personal information leaked to take advantage of criminal law. Since there are so many bad guys around us, we need to be careful about everything.

It doesn't matter we are interacting and treating with people not physically know them, just the name. We never know the personality. It is as the consequent of the improvement of technology which makes the world seems smaller because we can reach the world only by phone. However, it should not hinder us to interact to others, wherever we interact the most crucial is morality and good behave.
