    that you learn about people in a different order than other ways.

    If you meet someone face to face, you have no idea that they can't spell, till much later on. But you see what makes them smile, and how quick their mind is.

    Online you see what kind of a writer someone is first, however, written responses can be carefully crafted with multiple drafts, and may not translate to being a quick wit in real live conversations.

    In the end, you DO learn all of these things about the person, but just in a different order.

    You would have discovered that these were cruel women eventually, but in this case you discovered it first and saved yourself some time.
