I like interacting with people on the internet cause I can't see them and then end up having less dumb judgmental things to think about them and can just enjoy the things they are thinking about. Sometimes I wish I could just exist in meatspace with a filter of my vision so people were just blur-suits or something.

I'm so severely near-sighted that I don't need a filter. I need only take off my glasses.

@starbreaker that honestly sounds sort of useful. I guess I could just go out into the world wearing someone else's perscriptions.

@liaizon My experience suggests we are as judgmental online, even based on less information than in meatspace. We may even be quicker and unforgiving in our judgments because of how little information we have and how few the consequences for a bad judgment are.

You just aren't very judgmental yourself.

As a case in point, I've taken to muting users with anime avatars on sight the way I used to do on birdsite. It doesn't violate their rights, and doing so doesn't harm me, so I see no reason not to return to a proven heuristic for avoiding interaction with people who are complete wastes of ammunition. :)
