The fascination of the Internet and "cyberspace" is its sense of boundlessness. A user seemingly can go anywhere, be anyone, and do anything in a virtual world of information and interactivity. Actions on-line, however, often may have real world ramifications. The demarcation line between the physical and cyberspace "worlds" is not so pronounced that actions occurring in one have no effect in the other.
