Julia apologizes for the blurriness of this photo, and asks "I don't think I'm crazy, and I do realize that the 'people' in the video games that I play aren't real. Therefore, this begs the question: is a profile for an imaginary character, in fact, a 'profile'? Is Little Mac the 'Minor' title-holder so that we don't get confused and disappointed when he doesn't appear on ESPN?"

I see her point, but, then is the person in any profile a reflection of an actual individual? Should all virtual identities include quotation marks?
