This week I inadvertently came across some information. Information that was potentially embarrassing to someone who I "know" on the internet, but whom I've never met in real life. I found out that she's been misrepresenting herself on the internet. Lying about something basic to the persona she has created. Maybe I should have kept this information to myself. And probably I would have if she had ever done anything to earn goodwill with anyone in any of the time I've "known" her. However, simply put, she hasn't. She's done her best to annoy or anger a number of people who I like and respect. People who I know (without the need for air quotes). So I let the information get out.
So maybe I have some work to go before I'm a truly virtuous person. Fiercely loyal? Yes. Virtuous? Um, working on it.
Ah, hell, you guys know me. That probably went without saying.
