This endless discussion about “fake” avatars and being “someone else” in virtual worlds. I commented in Eners blog and I really dont understand ppl that obsess about this.
For me it´s simple. This is my free time and I want to be able to be silly and play around with virtual horses, sailingboats and whatever. It´s my playground. Even if I dont do anyting spectacular I don´t want my employer or anyone else random aquaintance to snope around in my private life and judge me. Because they would if they could. As internet is transparent they would find me instantly and that wouldn´t be ok for me. They wouldn´t understand that I have a skeleton friend who loves to pet my bunnehs in my virtual garden for example (see pic :O)
So I really dont understand this discussion about online privacy being “fake”. Before internet either my employer (or anyone else random stranger) could easily spy on me when i was laying in my sofa reading a book or whatever. So why should they be able to do that now?
And yes Im human, despite the fact that I want a private life. :O)
I reblogged this cos it´s an important issue for me. READ ON:
