The Internet is difficult. The lack of body language and facial responses makes it hard to know when you've crossed a line, and unfortunately, everyone's lines are different.

I honestly think this is the first time I've ever heard someone refer to the internet as "difficult"! And yes, I laughed at that.

On to my actual question now.. Why in the world would you think people having different 'lines' is unfortunate? I would say it's great as it's essential to our personal development.
