I think it is so much fun when we meet someone IRL who posts on or reads the CR. I went to an event last Motzai Shabbos, and was talking to a very friendly lady who had knowledge of future planned events at her shul. She offered to e-mail me to let me know about them, and when I gave her my e-mail address, she looked at it and asked if I post on the Yeshivah World News site. Turns out, she recognized my name from it, and is more a lurker than poster, but it was a still a nice coincidence to meet a stranger who is still somehow connected through the CR. So hi, Stranger/New Friend. It was nice talking to you.March 27, 2012 12:26 am at 12:26 am #862987farrocksMember

or oomis’ email address can be very similar to her usernameMarch 27, 2012 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #862990soliekMember
I met someone from the CR 2 weeks ago on friday night 😀March 27, 2012 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #862991oomisParticipant
My suggestion – if someone does try to contact someone from the CR, you should identify yourself by your CR name, so the person will know who you are.March 27, 2012 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #862992MiddlePathParticipant
I’ve met with a few people here in real life, and they were wonderful experiences. Interestingly enough, I was able to do this even with living hundreds of miles away from the vast majority of members here.March 27, 2012 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #862993NaysbergMember
Middle: Did you travel hundreds of miles to meet them or did they travel hundreds of miles to meet you?March 28, 2012 3:35 am at 3:35 am #862994MiddlePathParticipant
Naysberg, I traveled.March 28, 2012 1:06 pm at 1:06 pm #862995
I know two regular readers from Gateshead and one abroad (and I think there may be others as well). Actually, I guess I’m quite famous.
Not that that’s a good thing…March 28, 2012 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #862996yossi z.Member
I know for a fact that there are more people than will admit that know who I am IRL. The other direction, I know who a few people and lurkers are IRL.March 28, 2012 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #862997ZeesKiteParticipant
