A Guy Walks into a Bar...

... so starts a great many jokes. And they pretty much fall right in line with guys walking into chatrooms. It never fails to amuse/befuddle/sadden me to see what some people enter into the chatrooms on the site with. You know from the onset a train wreck is coming, but you can't tear yourself away from watching.

Far too often men enter chatrooms and within moments ask if anyone (or the most recently posting female) if they want sex. It's funny to watch and yet sad at the same time.

Entering a chatroom, whether here or elsewhere, is a lot like entering a real bar; except the clientel is more spread out geographicly. There's the crowd of regulars hanging out talking and laughing amongst themselves. There's the folks wandering in for the first time that are timidly looking around to see where they may fit in. There's the false-bravado ones overtly full of their own self-confidence and rudely broadcasting it to all within range. Your usual crowd that you can find at our local establishment on a weekend night with a few extras thrown in.

Now I don't believe for a second that the same people that wander into a chatroom and immeadiately ask for sex would do the same in a public bar. And yet the same scenario is played out day after day in chatrooms.

Does the false sense of anonimity from the internet give them enough false courage to overcome the otherwise blatently obvious point that the least amount of decorum keeps people from doing what they do in public?

I've never been able to figure it out...

and probably never will!

Great analogy.

Yes indeed, at times it's fun to sit back and watch the show.
