I appreciate your standpoint, but I don't believe that we cannot have fulfilling interpersonal relationships via the internet. It's just a bit different. I and others I know all communicate almost solely by relay, and even though we cannot physically be together, we can still have meaningful experiences together! These relationships are every whit as real and fulfilling as relationships I could have if I went directly to where they were and interacted with them physically. If I did go physically, it would be a gift of great value to them of course, because they know how far it is for me.
