I agree with what Paul said about "Surveiller" term. I think people do want to live a fantasy life so to speak. They want to have a hidden personality. And by being on-line, no one sees who they truely are. So they don't have to be true to who they are. The anonymous surveillance is in interesting concept. They want other people's input on their views, but don't want to risk being the outsider. I think "Surveiller" is complety true and the Sims offers people a chance to live a different life without the worries of the real world.
