@DissidentKitty I find the 'real world' and IRL terms annoying. Like many, I'm trapped at home much of the time by a chronic illness, and online has been a life saver. I've met some wonderful people online and I value friendships online the same as meatspace. There are some weeks when apart from my partner, chatting to people online is my only other connection to the world.

@DissidentKitty
Pirates in Sweden tried to get AFK in as a nice 'neutral' term.

@DissidentKitty I'm partial to "dirtspace" to avoid the icky connotations of a space full of meat.

@DissidentKitty don't give meat supremacists the space.

I vote vacuumspace, because everything is in vacuum. Like, i am in vacuum, but there is air too.
