Anonymity vs. the Transparent Society

Still it amazes me that someone would do this. It doesn't violate my world model, per se, but it certainly bolsters some of the less rosy aspects of it. It's ironic, given the blatantly fraudulent nature of it, that whatever security such people feel is because our legal system protects them from bodily harm.

Note the bolded blooper:

This is the best email address for me. kindofinnocent@yahoo.com It is so easy for me to check, even when I am at work! It was sweet of you to reply to my ad. It is always flattering to receive interest from people that wish to know me better. I've been so busy. I'm kind of overwhelmed that I've had all these replies and many of the people seemed really nice and it seemed impolite not to answer them back one time at least. This is kind of new to me, but I guess this is where I tell you about me. I work full time, my work will do for now, love to live life to the fullest, and really value time with my friends and family. The last few months its been rough meeting people. Recently relocating to $IdentityCity and not knowing my way around or anybody local, I really would like could use to show me around. I am very lonely since moving here. There is just this one thing. I am new to this whole personals experience and I have to get a few things straight before I can meet you. Would it be O.K. if we do things my way for at least a little while? Someone I know from home is helping me learn about the internet and this online dating thing. I'm on a break so I'll wrap up. Let me know because I would like to continue to get to know you. I hope you can email me soon.
