Would you tell your mother to "f*ck off and die" over the phone, because you are not actually talking to your mother but interacting via electrons? So why is the internet any different? I'll answer the question: it is not any different.
There are folk ideas about karma in some Asian countries, according to which karma is made only when one is in a monastery, for example. IOW, such folk ideas about karma assume that there are times and places where one can do whatever one wants, without any karmic consequences.
The idea that one's (mental, verbal, bodily) actions don't result in kamma when one is in some particular online settings, seems to be such a folk idea about karma as well.
I would get rid of that "folk idea" and believe forum internet is real world if everyone shares their name, age, height, weight, address, occupation, city and photos/videos ..
At least I have disclosed all above except name .. most here know my height, weight, approx age, occupation and even have seen three photos (assuming they were paying attention over past two years) .. know that I once was an alcoholic .. and gave it up since my girlfriend left me .. and they know I am single and caregiver to my mother
About you all that we know is you are some type of farmer (or have a large garden) .. have learned some kind of psychology or social science course .. and live in Central Europe (I think Slovenia) .. probably you were a member of ISKCON or some Hindu organization (all are probably)
If internet is same as real world .. why don't you and other members share more details?
I will answer it .. because internet is not the real world .. and same rules do not apply.
