I would be inclined to accept this claim, even though I must admit I’m no expert on online sex, (I won’t deny being a fan of the traditional, i.e. ‘skin on skin’ type).
The reason I mention this is that I think, like with almost anything to do with sex, the messege runs much further then skin deep. In fact, you can replace ‘sex’ above with ‘social interaction’ and it would still be right.
I think I finaly got it. Now I know why I like the web-too-oh style. As a side effect of being geek-driven, its a back-to-text movement. Sure, better fonts, softer colours, using text size and arrangment to configure meanings. But at the end of the day, its text. no flash, no voiceover, no click-here-to-skip-the-intro-then-why-the-hell-did-you-bother-with-an-into-in-the-first-place.
Text. As in written words.

Just back from Firenze. Don't miss the walk up the Duomo's Cuppola (i.e. up to the top of the dome itself). Note: its a seperate queue. You can skip the floor, and go straight to the top.
While you're there, if you're not too dizzy, have a close look at Zucchero's contribution to Vasari's ceiling.
