We are people.  I have mourned ladies from this site, 3 of them:(  Please dont say its only a computer screen.  It is far too minimizing of the humanity that connects us all.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

I've made many friends on "just this computer screen" that I would not have ever met in real life because we live so far away from each other. So, no it is not "just a computer screen" and I feel sad for those who view it as such. It's a window to the world BUT it should NOT be your ONLY window/friend.

To be sure!

I'm not sure what's going on but you can meet really nice people online.

Nothings really going on but there are a few threads on the board where people have made the statement and I felt the need to speak against it. 

As far as mourning I saw a post about a departed member on fb today and it drove home the human component of this forum to me.

You answered my question. I am not an emotional person. After losing my Dad, I have to admit, I do not get upset easily for people I never met. I might feel bad but not personal.. If that makes sense.

I never got very close with anyone on the internet I never met but that is just my personality. Though the longer I am on here the more "friendly" I feel towards a few

Not recently, I just saw a post on fb that reminded me.  And glitters friends loss :(

Thank you, I am good, I just needed to speak on the human factor here :)
