sometimes i feel like a stalker on here. I'm always checking daily to see what other people have to say. And, I've begun to notice something.

I'm slowly thinking that I know some of these people. Not just "sympathetical knowing" but know them in "real life"

And its hard not to say anything to them. I would never want to make them uncomfortable or publicly out them but its a bit awkward.

Am I the only one that feels this way?

I'm almost 100% sure I don't know anyone on Ether in real life, or at least outside of the Internet. It's vaguely comforting.

I know who I know, and they all know me. But the entire member base of Ether save for two people have no idea who I am, and vice versa. I might have met a few of them before, but I wouldn't know it, and they wouldn't know either.

Like the person above said, it's comforting. I love it here.

Oh I know I've combed through blogs because I think I know who a person is. But, I like the not knowing. I know two people on here and I'd like to keep it that way!

i'm glad you only get a color on here. truly makes posting an easier thing..

And when you realise that some people have more than one colour, you start getting headaches trying to figure out who's who. I don't recommend it :p

i know for sure one person on here, because she told me about it. i love it. anonymity

I know two people on here and maybe more, I'd be curious, but rather keep the person anonymous. I do sometimes feel like I know these people, but then I realize that there is such a dynamic difference from this to real life.
