    Default Have you met anyone off of the forums?

    Not as in you knew them from somewhere else...but met them on the forum and found out you lived close or something and met?

    "One so far, next door neighbor, '******' but hasn't been on for awhile." (a surprise)

    I dont think I would want to. On the boards people say their ranks or hint at them but if you actually meet than work would start to cross on the boards. On here I could ask anyone a question or say something stupid without it coming back to bite me.

    True. Although I know two people on here from being stationed together at previous bases.

    I was TDY to where Bruwin lives and we played a round of golf. Turns out we know a lot of the same people, which isn't surprising since we're both intel guys.

    Nope, and wouldn't want to. Even though some of the guys let their rank show in this place, they don't try to throw it around.

    I've met one member and his family while on vacation and enjoyed meeting them. (I wish my son was more social, but he was overwhelmed and wanted to shut down)

    I have an open invitation to another member who shares my interests in rock grubbing/ gem mining to explore certain areas/ mines in my neck of the woods.

    There are a few others I wouldn't mind meeting, but not everyone.

I don't know why you guys keep trying to force things. It's not really working, from what I can tell and just annoys loyal posters. But, as has been shown, you can take your ball and go home, and there's nothing we can do about it.

    Just the few that I already knew outside of the forum...
