> Nope, it's not. Right now, your idea of Dr Bob is awfully appealing, because you've created him.

Yeah, I know. :-) I just hope Dr. Bob doesn't completely destroy the image of him I've created when I meet him in person.

>You need to find some sort of comfort, so you've chosen Dr Bob to be your comfort, you "love" him because he seems to be filling that need, but you know what? HE'S not filling that need, you're filling that need using a sort of placeholder that looks like him.

I think it's cool that I'm filling that need myself.

> Right now, you feel as though you love Dr Bob, but what if he were just like all the other people around you in real life?

Yeah, I know I don't know him. I don't think I love the "real" Dr. Bob...I love the Dr. Bob in my mind. I love him based only on what he does on the boards. I know that is not the real Dr. Bob. I like loving him, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to continue it.

> I hope this makes sense to you, Deneb, and that you think about it.

Yes, it makes sense to me Racer. Thanks for your thoughts about this.
