    How many people on internet message boards have you personally met?

    Just two. Both were brash and bold on the internet but in RL they were nothing like what they portrayed themselves to be.

    The internet "tough guys" are usually timid folk.

    Not a message board but back in the days of Rainbow Six, one of the guys in my clan mentioned he was from my state. Come to find out he lived 5 minutes from me. Many good times were had and he was exactly like he was online.

    Never met anybody myself. But, when I was hardcore deep into EVE Online, my clan (corp) and I had plans to meet up at the annual EVE Fanfest in Iceland. Never happened, though.

    Many, except the stalker, the stalker doesn't qualify.

    I met both at a local LAN about 5 yrs ago, from HardOcp. Last LAN I have attended, good time it was though.

    None, but it would be cool to meet at least one person someday.

    Ditto. People live all over America, and the world. There are some I'd like to meet personally but it just isn't or wasn't in the cards.

    AMDMB members used to go to sponsored AMD events. One I planned to attend I just couldn't get away at the last moment. It could happen!

    If it's to buy and sell parts then I've met dozens easily.

    If we're including LANs...

    [AE]Alpha Elites LAN parties were the best. We had at least 48 attendees at the last one. I'd have to guess I've met at least 60+ from online over the years. Good times!
