i don't think you're a flake, and emoot's pretty cool.
Though I stick to my position that a little bit of anonymity is no harm, as long as nobody abuses it.
I'd also like to think Emily is a friend, and it's a real friendship.
Where everything is "accountable", trust becomes unnecessary and it atrophies.

> It is hardly safe to be honest here, and I can see, Emily, that the more prominent you are, the greater the risk you face when you open up at all. I personally feel like when I do express my feelings on here, that rather than anyone really relating, I just look like a stupid flake. I wish I did not care, because there are people like Emoot on these boards. When she responds, you know she's sincere. (I am not trying to kiss butt, here. I really mean it.)
