    Has anyone met up

    I am interested to know, since C board is such a large community of people, if any one actually personally knows or has met in person any other baord member before. I suppose it all depends where each person resides.

    I have not met anyone yet, but you wouldn't say, in the street:

    "Hello, are you Salem, or Bubba or moxarator or prelude, Cat, manutd ect.. LOL

    I haven't and don't plan to.
    I'm not here for socializing, if you want the crude version.

    Well, I haven't met up with anyone, per se, but I have peeped into several of the notable forum members' house windows for several hours at a time.

    Nope. I do have most of you "on record" in case the need arises, however.

    I met jverkoey in california in 2003. He's cool. his real name is Jeff, and his last name is impossible to pronounce, but it goes like "ver coy yen." Nobody could pronounce it. Ever.

    I enjoyed his company, except he kept harassing me and made me feel uncomfortable about my sexuality.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    Yeah, it seems necrophilia just hasn't quite made it mainstream, for ya yet, Bob. Maybe if you stop asking everyone where they buried their relatives, they wouldn't push you away as much.

    I've never met anyone here and prob won't since most of us are on opposite sides of the globe.

    Not to mention some of you scare me.

    No, but I do know that it's a relatively small country on top of Latvia.
