Because a lot of people can't handle the truth due to being too oversensitive. A lot of people were raised in a world with masks and when the masks come off, they can't mentally handle it. So you made these people very uncomfortable. On top of that, you didn't obey their rules when it comes to socializing. Sheep flock to sheep and hate those who are not of the herd. They don't like outsiders who are rebel scum in their eyes. But why do you see this as a bad thing? Why do you see yourself as someone who is being punished? You did yourself a favor. You put all the people you were talking to through a crucible that separates the fake sheep from the real people. And in the long run, this is a good thing because quality over quantity is a good thing. But if you resort to cheats and hacks, you will only be allowing yourself to live an illusion. And other than making you feel good once in awhile, an illusion is useless. And keep in mind, this illusion can turn on you anytime and hurt you badly. Surrounding yourself with sheep who wear masks is an invitation to being severely back stabbed. There are too many wolves in sheep's clothing, after all.
Still though, illusions aren't bad, especially if sometimes they get empowered into actively and physically being manifested, with power to manipulate even people and events of my choosing and even towards my own benefit, albeit usually short lived and easily threatened by meddling third parties... To be precise, illusions are usually the most i can afford, in the state i find myself into, due to other people's actions against me.
I insisted in staying there, though and got rewarded well for that. I must learn to hide things about me, especially my age, since i am cute and very younger-looking than i actually am. Because even for friendship, sheep hate older sheep and judge ONLY by numbers and looks, RARELY, almost NEVER, taking any other factors into account, pathetic and sad...
Another mask then, i have to don... I have no choice. Honesty was bad for the health of my interactions, online or otherwise. People love lies, hiding stuff about you, hypocrisy, subterfuge, secrets etc. I love honesty, so it was only natural, to have that treatment.
What i hate about life, no, about MY life, is that i am always FORCED to do OR HIDE things that i always HATED, in order to reap some certain "rewards". I am forced to always resort to cheats, hacks and "time travel", things that i always hated, too. The one thing i hate the most in this life, is not the rarity of my successes, but that in order to "succeed" in anything i set my eyes upon, i have no other choice than all those options, every single one of which i dreadfully hate.
