I can see how one could fall into a web of lies. People always think I'm a black Vietnam Vet. Well I'm here to tell you, I was never a veterinarian while in Vietnam. If you must know, I was in Burma. Jk, but seriously, I did storm the beaches of Normandy. It was during "Dessert Storm" but my heart was in the right place.
Pretending to be somebody else is a form of play. The imagination is getting some exercise and involving other people. It's trickster stuff. It's harmless fun if handled properly and there is no ulterior motive.
Who is it that is pretending? and how do you know they're pretending if you don't know them in the first place?? I only do improvisational/role play pretending, I have no desire to just straight up lie about who I am. Other people, well that's what they do I guess.

Most are sick people that are looking for young children or someone to scam.Other wise I can not see why a person would need to pretend they are anyone other than them selves.On a site such as Ask.com this site I believe is to answer questions for people who need an answer.Maybe i'm the dumb one?And missing the game.
There have been some studies that show people who are online more often than the average, tend to have social issues. They are seekers. It's a way to reinforce some meaning for their lives;that they are significant, and if they have to fabricate to seek that attention they will. Anyone can become a compulsive lier or sugar coat the truth whether you are or are not online. I think those who put up a front have not accepted all their flaws and if they don't harm you, for your sake, you shouldn't even care. Hope that helps.
