The interesting thing is, the folks that I tend to like, encourage,
and "hang out with" on lists are the same people who, when I meet them
f2f, I tend to like to hang out with over a beer or a game of pool.
I'm mean, for all the differences that list culture has, we're really
talking about the rules of social engagement. It's just that this
medium is so new in the scheme of things that we have to learn where
to get our cues from.
