First let me say I love playing poker on line.   Online poker is a great place to get your feet wet and learn the art of winning  and trying to read what a players next move is even though you can't see your opponents face .  I look at a lot of the poker shows on tv, my favorite show is the big game where a loose cannon or amature gets to play with some heavy hitters.  I've seen some loose cannons fold the best hands out of fear,  I don't think that would happen on line, because you don't have to look the other players in the eye and your in the comfort of you own home most  of the time so most times your confidence is in tact.  Doyle Brunson said it best great players come off line, but what they are lacking in some cases is people skills.  One of my goals is to not only play online, but also get into some real game action off line, but only with what I can afford to lose, another reason why playing on this site is so great is the freerolls.  I've had some good times and some bad times, Its also important to keep it fun for your self even if you really need to win a pot.
