Did you know each other pre-DIS or after you began posting?
Just wondered what the dynamics of this board are, innit.
but now i live far away and haven't seen anyone who posts in person for around 4 years and that's far creepier than you can ever imagine
There's maybe three or four posters I knew in real life first. With at least two of them it's a complete coincidence that they also post on here.
As inevitably everyone would be a massive disappointment in comparison to the towering titans who post on these boards.
Never meet your heroes
Don't arrange dates with internet perverts
everyone else after
He will say I'm a clone of him. He's wrong. OR ARE HE???
Just many many multiple accounts (most of them, 'Loo Chien'). Drowning in Schizophrenia!
BUT THAT'S IT.
THat was two POs you were seeing.
I knew her accent wasn't real.
I know you went to Radiohead the other night, who you went with, and I've even seen photos of it.
Isn't that creepy?
Though it would be moreso if I didn't know who you were.
just like to pretend I do. My boyfriend is Chris-budget though but he doe not know this yet.
are we going out now?
a few days ago?
I follow a few posters on twitter and vice versa.
Dunno if that helps.
I actually met some DiSer's years and years ago for the first time but it wasn't until a good 6 months after moving to London that I started hanging out with them properly.
so i know who he is
Sean has a serious multiple personality disorder and is every other poster on this board. For that matter, maybe I am Sean?
to find and upload loads of random photos under different usernames in that other thread.
to get my (his) your post right.
but nmost of the peoples on here i know from here i've alas not seen for a while :(
Couple of them have turned out to have mutual friends with. That's awkward.
and I just didn't know it.
but that's only a couple anyway
I worked in the same building as pip_ for ages but we didn't realise. then our offices merged and then he left the company. he did come to my birthday drinks this year tho, which was nice of him.
And I met SarcasticFringehead in March but I don't think we spoke about DiS at the time. last weekend we recognised each other tho, madskillz.
Certain people like Darwindude and deadonthestairs would have been my friend anyway, cause we know all of the same people.
did he crap on your drive or something?
You, cat_race and Scout all know quite a few of the people i know i think.
but, like moousee said, i would have anyway at some point. regardless. i'm going to loko at our mutuals now andyvine
and then ian breen as well
down in acapulco
but a friend joined recently to post on the music boards.
otherwise no idea who you lot are
oh i forgot i met count_zero and also zapsta twice to try and make music
*probably met at least 100 people who post here
*most people i know through music read the boards occasionally, with a lot of them having accounts that they use very very infrequently
*can think of a few people that i suggested they get on here, Back When It Was Good (it almost certainly wasn't actually better, but i liked it infinitely more)
*i met someone that i went out with for 3 years on here
*the two bands that i play in most feature people that i first became aware of on here
dunno why i bothered to post this
The Eltham people think they have met is actually a mate of mine I send to social functions.
Shit at everything else though. He's the best I can afford.
now i can't stop meeting them. gosh.
met some other disers through him subsequently.
I'm good friends now with someone I met from these boards which is cool. The first night I met him we discussed that guy Bamnan or whatever his name is, as it was during the peak of all that shite.
most don't post much these days.
I knew bobbygrindrod before either of us started posting and then we started independently.
GoatmeatFm (music board) works in my office, kne him before i knew he posted on here.
everyone i have met has been really nice, i particularly liked bobbygeorge, he was great
WHAT A GIFT
Some of the people that have become my best friends I didn't actually get to know on the boards or talk to at all via pm or whatever but met whilst out with other DiSers.
My boyfriend posts on the boards, I would say we met through mutual friends though rather than on the internet because we had never really interacted on here, I think we exchanged a couple of pms once because of a thread about Coheed and Cambria and I might have sent him an MP3 but that was it. I only got chatting to him IRL.
We met at an open mic night put on my xylopwn in december and didn't speak online at all and finally got together in Feb/March through seeing each other a few more times out with friends. I'll always say mutual friends as that what it was really. I know some people will look at this and think how lame but so many couples have together through this website...whether meeting up at an event or through people who post on here or by flirting and PMing and I think its great as i wouldn't have met him otherwise.
- I can't even remember how I stumbled across DiS!
Wouldnt mind doing one day though. Might be nice
great bunch o' lad, but to be honest he's changed a bit since he started getting more chicks, though i don't say owt.
Met a few people through gigs and of course Zoininioninoio (or whatever the fuck it's called).
And I realised I knew a few people before DiS who were on here.
But still don't know very many people. I don't go out of my way to hang out with Dissers. Just get on with things normally and because you're all into the same things, you normally cross paths at some point.
