Although I believe this question may not be all that straightforward, I was wondering – in a Web environment such as the UniLang forum, is it better to pick a speech level and go with it, or, once one knows about real life age gaps, social distinctions etc., to change levels accordingly? If I’m 29 and address two people I’m not familiar to or friends with, but which I know are 18 and 45 years old, are the age gaps important regarding the choice of level, or should I treat them both equally owing to this being an online forum?
And does one tag 씨 to screen/user names (e.g. noir씨), or any other sort of honorifics at all?
