You're saying that as if they were separate universes.
We're professionals in the same field; it's possible we might bump into each other at a conference, for instance, or at a job interview. On that basis, I conduct my conversations with people here no differently than I would if we were scheduled to meet tomorrow IRL.
If anything, we should consider that stricter standards of conduct apply to Usenet. The details of a conversation IRL can be forgotten; insults hurled here are recorded for posterity.
