I didn't know.

I'm not surprised in the least. It's been well known to many of us for years now. You can see it on all kinds of sites with different people.

I've learned over the years to "read" a lot of people and can usually pick out the phonies pretty quickly. There are plenty of them on almost every website I've been on with the exception of this one.

We may be few but we are true!

Oh, yes... I have often seen people say things anonymously online that they would hardly say to anyone's face.  Online disinhibition is real enough.
