Ability to socialize with others without having to worry about getting beat up
And we wonder where the internet trolls come from...
I mean, I get it. Parent want their kid to be safe. But when you remove the whole "do this and you will get punched in the face" aspect of social interaction, then certain behaviors fail to get snuffed out.
We've all seen that comic about when little stephan forgets he is not online. There's a kernel of truth to that.
I'm sure it will help socialize them to the facts of the Internet. Like how to deal with trolls, and how to ignore annoying people, and how you can't tell when someone is a dog.
But I imagine it will hurt their real-life socializing skills.
So... new thing comes a long and it's different. Good in some way, bad in others. Or maybe I'm just getting old.
