Perhaps the lurkers at the prior event only claimed to be lurkers in order to not reveal their on screen identities.. Gosh meeting in person could really give people on here some major ammunition on future personal attacks. That's my worry as things can get pretty hairy around here.

That's a good point, and might be true.. but whatever, I don't really care; I'm just out to have a good time.

Actually the lurker/under-cover-regular-poster takes all the fun out of it. Otherwise its really just a bunch of strangers meeting up, rather than getting to hang out with your "friends" and "frenemies" and get a different impression than you get on screen about them (or clarify that your impression was correct). Some people would be easily recognizable, like say SuperMario being only 19, Spanish and from the BX. He's probably a minority being in that age group on here (I suspect there's more old farts like me) so he'd be an easy one to figure out. Also probably page3000, she has also described herself pretty well. It would be fun if all the regulars showed up 4 sho! LOL

I suspect everyone would actually get along surprisingly well...as we are all just regular people for the most part. However I don't think I could ever pick anyone out...I really have no idea what anyone looks like..even with a description, as I have learned how people view themselves and how others view themselves can be very different. Nonetheless I will arrange something for next Friday (august 8)...and I should have a place set up by tomorrow. I shall keep you all posted!

Well.. I'm just 19 as well, so you'll be able to spot me easily!
BTW, I was looking forward to SuperMario and Guy having a chat about the BX... any chances of this happening??
