in a 'real' version of cyberland wabi could have one of his buddies post a new place to join in wabi fun. back at kim's for instance, it's not like anyone's using it. why would it be NM or bust?
I have accepted that NM brings out sides of one's personality that are dormant in one's daily life. Through misinterpretation, joking, jousting and repartee these personas become amplified to a point where they are non-transferable. Realism and NM, at least for me, ARE mutually exclusive.
