Who said anything about being ashamed? I find it effective and
empowering to be an arrogant loudmouth. I think both of those
aspects of my personality are "real", just used for different
circumstances and different goals. In face-to-face encounters,
it is less effective--which is probablywhy traditional politeness
evolved the way it did. I can change my image face-to-face
sometimes as well. Perhaps I acquired that skill for the poker
table and just carried it further here.
