real responsibilites located in the physical life of the body vs online life

i'm not sure i entirely agree; what do you think?

"[C]yberspace resurrects rather than transcends the dualist legacies of the past...[W]e would do well to remember that we are, for the forseeable future, 'here to stay' in these bodies, on this planet, and that our responsibilities are located precisely here, not in some parallel digital universe (Dery 1996; Slouka 1995; Williams 1998). Real bodies, real lives, real responsibilities" (Williams and Bendelow 1998: 88).
