That's a good point too. However, I think for a lot of roleplayers, it's not necessarily so important to make more real life friends through the game. They have plenty of friends in the place where they live, and they want to use the online space for their creative expression and temporary seclusion from the hassles of real life. But to say that they aren't interesting in learning the personal details of other players online doesn't mean they don't care about those people. It's just that they don't need to know things like "are you a girl in RL?" in order to give or receive that basic human caring between friends. If their characters are friends, then the players are friends too -- the personal real-life details really don't matter so much in the context of the environment they share together.
