Particularly in light of the occasionally documented (but probably fairly prevalent among the ultra-lonely) practice of men pretending to be women on the internet and convincing other men to buy them gifts. I have known one such person personally (a friend of mine was in a soul-crushing relationship with a guy who wanted her to talk on the phone with other lonely internet guys so that he could coerce more profit from them) and heard stories of others.

Well, yes, but I think a lot of what we do through impersonal communications methods is for emotional support. Even if it's just seeking out people we can identify with on the internet, for assurance that our own hobbies and fan behaviors are acceptable :3

Actually, in some cases you only have to pretend being a shy female to get the gifts free of charge, no convincing needed. In an online (text-only) game I had two characters, one male, one female, both not interested in online sex (I prefer to level grind my characters into sharply defined niches of skills). The male character got blatantly hit on by an obvious GIRL in the most explicit of terms - as used in bad lemon fanfic (ignoring hir worked). The female character, whose character design I had specifically described as not being the typical GIRL character (so insteads of big boobs and skimpy clothing, my character was a tomboyish wizard), got a different kind of attention. She got loaded with free gifts by a fellow low-level male character who couldn't be told off at all without straying out-of-character. It was so bad he spent all his money earned in-game (hours of actual playtime at that level) on expensive gifts for my female character. Despite getting zero positive romantic feedback.

At the time, it felt like prime sexual harassment because I could not bring myself to tell him to sod off. In hindsight, in a way it is a very sad (and hilarious) thing that the guy apparently had such a need for romantic attention that he went to great lengths to romance a character who was not at all interested in such things and never ever showed an ounce of attention to him besides "Thank you". He never ever got a clue.

And now you're telling me I could've made some real money off it...Goddamn it! Missed a great business opportunity there.

Well, yeah, but we will only reach the same level of support once we start talking about one's hairy <insert minor body part here> in deterring making eye contact with the other sex. ;)

You know, at first I was surprised by this story. Then I thought of the otaku out there holding birthday parties (with real cake) for the fictional girls from Love Plus, and, by comparison, giving imaginary things to a player character is not quite as strange as buying real things in an imaginary interaction with a non-player character.

Thanks, MSW!

Looks...awkward. Some of those people would really benefit from losing some weight, too.

THE BIRTH OF AN OTAKU.

I vote Paul to infiltrate an otaku group and learn its esoteric ways. Imagine the wisdom he could bring back! What are these 'pants' and why are they romantic? Ancient secrets and forbidden doors await.
You know as well as I do just what pantsu he's talking about.

Besides, I've already infiltrated the otaku group that lives in my head and assassinated its leader.

And this board already has a discussion on waifus!

And people elsewhere are complaining about that discussion (and so many others)!

I actually didn't listen to this when I first saw it, I just reflexively replied with the other waifu song. But this is actually even better musically than the previous one.

EVERYBODY LOVE YOUR WAIFUS, AND LADIES LOVE YOUR HUSBANDOS!

Some ronery Destroid Phalanx pilot had Etna as his waifu. Perhaps he survived the great Zentraedi attack a couple years ago and walks amongst us today, planning to get a spot on the SDF-2 Megaroad for next year's launch. Don't you dare mock his dakimakura.
