Also: the Internet is a communication medium. No one would cut you the slightest bit of slack if you said "Yes, I sent harassing voice mails and called him hourly - but it's just the telephone, it doesn't matter!" If you're a skywriter and take off to write "FUCK" in enormous letters over Salt Lake City, you definitely expect trouble when you touch down again. The medium is not an excuse for what you do with it.
Also, something bright and white just flashed within my field of vision from roughly the direction of the chair. What the heck? There's nothing there except a pile of clothing. Does people's vision just occasionally "white out" sometimes, for the briefest of moments?
