When is catfishing really catfishing?

Catfishing defined:


In SL, there is the idea of having a purely online relationship where the real life details of those involved are completely ignored. There are people who like giving and getting real life information and there are people who would rather have their online avatar and what they do online to be the only thing visible to others.
The question I pose to you all: Do you think a person is a catfish if they want a SL relationship without real life info and have no intention to be cruel or to troll their partner? 

No, I don't think so. Now, if they did have the intention to be cruel or to troll their partner, then that's a different story. But otherwise, I don't think they're catfishing if they choose to keep their RL information out of SL. That's just their way of keeping the two separate...which can be done to a point, but in my opinion some things you just can't keep separate, such as thoughts and feelings.
