Perhaps it's that I'm sick and my head isn't working correctly...but I noticed something last week and it's stuck with me.  So what better place to hash it out? 

Why is it, when you have a friend, and you see them posting snippets or entire conversations with other people....and those other people's profound thoughts.  Entire conversations cut and pasted.  No names changed.  Why is it, when you see YOUR conversation and you are no longer yourself but represented as a series of dots...why does it hurt?  Why am I letting that make me feel that I am less smart, profound, funny, insightful, etc? 


Taking my sick ass to bed.  *grumbles*

Sometimes it's done as a protect-your-privacy kind of thing.

I've known a guy who has been severely railed for not looking out for other peoples' privacy before.

Re: 5 cents

It's not what others will think of me. It's more what that particular person thinks of me. Which I also know is wrong. But I can't help it.

He's someone I look up to so much. Everyone else gets their names in print. I get a series of characters.

I hear all week how she's so enlightened and this one is so sane....

Today I'm just wondering...what about me?

It will truly pass. I'm feverish. Ignore me. :)

Because, b'God, there IS such a thing as intellectual property! I try to give reference to people when I steal their stuff. :p

Re: 5 cents

I personally would suspect that the other person loves you.

dearest, if you are talking about the thing I do on my LJ,(these friends of mine) I dot out everyones name but mine for privacy. I do not want random people IM'ing you with shit.

I am sorry, I do not want to be the one making you feel that way if I am. If you would like I will not dot your name anymore or I wont use the random things you say if you think that would be better.

I am sorry. I wish you would have told me that is how you felt. I feel like an inch high now.
