Lying on the internet is pretty lame. But at the same time you dont always want to reveal too much about yourself, like personal information and the like.

Lying on the internet for mischievous gains? I'm God.

On a serious note people just do it, the internet provides the thickest of masks which would tempt normal people into doing things they wouldn't normally in the real world (unless you're one of those stolen valor pricks they got guts) and lying is above all else the easiest and people like to make fantasy into reality and make extravagant claims and live it up on the opposite its just like watching someone park their car at a fast food parking lot and go out panhandling its horrible.

The internet gives people the power of anonymity. And with great power comes great responsibility. Some people don't realize that over the internet, they have a special responsibility to remain honest and authentic since other online people are at a disadvantage by not personally knowing you. So it takes an extra level of trust to believe someone over the internet since it's a bigger leap of faith. Those who purposefully misuse this power are really just morally irresponsible and weak minded. Everyone lies, but lying still is hardly ever justified. So we should do our best to remain honest and authentic, especially over the internet to those we care about or talk to.

I know someone who would actually lie about the breakfast he ate if it somehow made him seem "cooler"

No reason to lie even on the internet. If you are lying, you are doing it not only to everyone you are trying to impress but to yourself. What are you trying to prove? What does it accomplish? What happens when people find out and you lose face?

Again, just be honest. I respect poor more when they are honest instead of liars.

Ever heard of the of the Boy that cried wolf?

I lie about my gender to avoid unwanted attention on certain websites.



Sometimes it depends on the lie, imo.

But yeah I feel you. I don't even bother telling my gender. Most people can figure that out by my typing mannerism.

Gaming websites that have a larger male population. I prefer not to deal with the attention, good or bad, that comes with being female. It's just stupid most of the time and on rare occasions disgusting. Being a male just avoids all that shit. Been doing it for years. If I make friends under the male guise, they find out then. I just don't care for the general nobodies to know. It's annoying and I dislike the special treatment.
