Once I'm retired, I wouldn't mind meeting up with a few of ya'll...maybe there'll be another get-together at some point...

I'm too much of an introvert to want to meet anybody IRL from an on-line forum.

While I enjoy exchanging thoughts and ideas with others in a forum such as this, any actual contact would be "too close" for me.

I am, what I am ...

I'm new here, and have no idea if I may have met anyone here or not (due to handles).

I've been involved in other internet groups in which I've met members in numbers from a few to over 100. What I've learned is that people can be quite different in person than their online persona, myself included.

None that I know of, although at one point early on I remember seeing a post that led me to believe it was someone in my neighborhood (who I may or may not know).

Given that I enjoy getting together with smart people, especially those with a sense of humor, perhaps meeting some fellow bots in person would be fun - hadn't really thought of it before.

I've met 1 member in person.

I would love to meet everyone who is a "regular". I have a lot of respect for the forum members' knowledge and feel a lot of kindred spirit with the jokesters.

So who wants to come visit East Nowhere, NY in the dead of winter?
No pushing, please form an orderly line...

None that I'm aware of.

But based on names/avatars alone I'd be interested in meeting some folks. A few just crack me up. Col. Klink for one. BirdieNumNums is another. And of course, W2R's old avatar along with bbbamI's old avatar had me interested for different reasons.

Of course, imagination is almost always better than reality.

I haven't met anyone, but a convention of introverts would be interesting to attend some day

S'ok, your photo is great - it reminds me of 60's British rockers!

As for me: I don't wear a bowler, it's been years since I had a mustache, and most days there is not a rainbow going from one hand to the other

Zero. In fact I have never met anyone that I have crossed paths with on the internet.

Growing up in the 60's I actually preferred British knockers

Ah, Dusty, how come you never even replied to my request for a date.....
