Rheingold (1993) includes 'communion' as an essential element, while Fernback and Thompson (1995) warn that virtual communities might lead people 'to forget what it means to form a true community'. They seem to suggest that off-line communities are closer, more committed, and provide greater reciprocity than any on-line association can provide. Rheingold also raises the importance of a physical meeting - the online relationship alone is not enough. Wellmann and Gulia (1997) suggest that the warm, supportive village with which virtual communities are contrasted do not exist in the modern Western world, and quite possibly never did.
