I think if we met face-to-face, we would get along really well. For example, I have a friend at grad school who used to be a member of the Young Communists, is a die-hard socialist, and holds all sorts of views contrary to mine. However, we get along great, even if those topics come up because we can be civil in person. However, if we were only to know one another through here, I think there would be lots of clashing between us.

If discussion got too heated, I could just say, "Well, how about another round of drinks?"

Wouldn't people rather talk about anything besides the subjects that come up in here? I would..

I would just watch For me it is so much easier to talk to people online than it is in person, unless I know someone pretty well. I think online conversation eliminates certain insecurities and awkwardness that might exist face to face.

It'd be different, but I don't think people who are nice on the Internet would instantly turn into asses in person or whatever. We'd do just fine.

Also the people I'd feel most comfortable/least uncomfortable meeting would probably be from here. I feel out of place/whatever in most of the rest of Interference

I'd like to give U2democrat and verte a hug and maybe others I won't name

i feel pretty much the same way. if i was going to head out for a night of fizzy drinks and conversation with any of the Interference crowd, i'd be most comfortable with the FYM kids. i like this place precisely for the reasons why a lot of others avoid this place like the plague.

as for that second part:

Yeah! Me also. This is my favorite forum here. I'm always surprised when other people say FYM is scary, to me some of the other forums are far more frightening.

you don't think you're really going to get away with that, do you? (despite the winky)

I doubt I'd get political meeting any of you. If you said something I didn't agree with I'd just roll my eyes and not give you the time of day anymore like any mature adult would do.
