Poll: Are you just as sharp and articulate in person...

Are you just as sharp and articulate in person as you are online?

In general, are those people you've met in person from this forum as sharp and articulate as you would have guessed from their A&F writings?

I'm funnier but less articulate in person.

I don't have the time to be very articulate here...

In person, I am occasionally sharp and sometimes articulate. I'm considered VERY funny by the people around me, in person. I don't think I come across that way online as much.

I'm certainly more articulate online than in person -- I would have been perfectly cast in Funny Ha Ha or Mutual Appreciation -- but my sharpness stays relatively constant, I think.

You didn't have the option "I ramble in a nonsensical fashion in the vain hope that somewhere amongst my nonsense a glimmer of an idea will surface, just as much in person as I do online".

...which is a shame cos I'd have voted for that too.

Dopes option 2 include people you knew before you came to A&F as well as people met as a result of meeting them at A&F?

Um . . . it really depends on which context of "online" I'm in. But I'd say in general, I'm better online, because I pick my words more carefully. That's a learned thing - I used to say whatever I would have said in a conversation, but then realized that having to come back later and read it could be excruciating. That's the thing about forums - they're awkward mixtures of conversation with friends and publishing your thoughts for the whole world to see.
