    We've heard some of your (for some kinda scary) internet stalker stories. Now........who has met someone on the internet that that you've made friends with.

    On my local Indy board (the only other message board I've ever belonged to beside here and a local sports one) we used to get together every other month for drinks and to listen to live music. It was fun to meet everyone, and we all had a blast. Then the board changed things around, people got mad and left, and now I've lost touch with everyone but one person who I still talk to a few times a week.

    I have......erm.....a "friend" that fell madly in love with someone he met on the internet. It turned out to be good for both of them for a short time, but she couldn't see it as a long term deal because he was married and she was seperated.

    Anyway, the affair ended amicably.

    I used to be involved with a lot of gaming forums, mostly CCG's. I'd meet those guys in tournaments across the nation and when I would travel I'd look them up.

    I haven't had the urge to meet folks from any of the political boards I've been on, but I suspect that has more to do with the fact I'm married now and a father, and hence have less time even on trips to set aside time for meeting with people.
