Inspired by recent events (in which Geordie613 and I discovered each other and made contact):
If you could choose any posters on the CR to discover their true identity and get to see them in Real Life – who would it be? There are some posters who I am desperate to see what they are really like.August 14, 2017 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #1339091
squeak. He promised to split a black and white cookie with me. He’s taking the black and I the white. And I email him Shana Tova every year.August 14, 2017 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #1339119

Besides the links bring broken (messing up pages), as seen above, the page count, page numbers, link to last post and last poster are all messed up with them being inaccurate with the number count and not always properly linking to the last page when clicking the last comment link.August 14, 2017 11:24 pm at 11:24 pm #1339162
Lol Joseph 😄 wait what, are you commenting on the other thread here to make a point? If so, then that’s quite clever! If not, then Hashem’s highlighting your case. ☺August 14, 2017 11:33 pm at 11:33 pm #1339166
Gofish, Yekke, Lightbrite, RebYidd, DY, Meno,,Geordie, and Golfer. Actually I would probably want to meet almost everyone besides for one person who is really creepy but I don’t know who it is (pretty sure it’s none of the above though.)August 14, 2017 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1339168rebshidduchParticipant
Lilmod, would you like to meet me?August 14, 2017 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm #1339169
” There are some posters who I am desperate to see what they are really like.”
Which ones? Who would you want to meet?
I often think that it would be cool to meet the other posters, and I’m always sort of hoping that I will, but at the same time, I am worried that it would be a big disappointment and ruin the way I relate to them. I think that there’s a good chance that many people would seem very different in real life, and when that happens, it makes it hard to relate to people the same way.August 14, 2017 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm #1339170
Oh, how could I forget about the heilige RebShidduch? And I really want to meet Johnny Appleseed too!! I wonder how she is – we haven’t heard from her in a while.I hope she’s ok. If you’re reading this JA, let me know how you are! I worry about you.
And of course I’d also want to meet Shopping.August 15, 2017 12:07 am at 12:07 am #1339176
Rebshidduch, I wrote my post before yours was moderated (although I could see that you posted). I didn’t think of you at first because you haven’t posted recently (at least not that I saw), but as soon as I saw your name, I realized that you should have been first on my list.
How are you? What’s up? Are you still going out with the Yeshiva Bochur? Are you going to EY this coming year? You don’t have to answer if you think it’s TMI – I really just want to know how you are are doing.August 15, 2017 12:13 am at 12:13 am #1339178
How come no one wants to meet the mods?August 15, 2017 2:37 am at 2:37 am #1339181MRS PLONYParticipant
lightbrite is so sweet. And Oomis seems so nice. I hurt coffee addict’s feelings once, so I’d like to apologize to her.
There are other interesting posters, but they’re men, so it wouldn’t be appropriate for me to want to meet them.August 15, 2017 2:37 am at 2:37 am #1339184
If you meet a mod in real life do they get to mod you in real life?August 15, 2017 2:40 am at 2:40 am #1339190jakobParticipant
i want to meet the mods who are amazing non-human angels that work 24/7 & are always doing an amazing job making sure each post is kosher with a good hechshar & no secret information.
i would also love to meet our updated Shver (father-in-law) to make a lchaim face to face with him & to thank him on behalf of everyone in the coffeeroom for all the advice he gives us from his law firm experience. all with a smile at no charge. by now most lawyers would be the YWN coffeeroom a $5,000,000 lawyer billAugust 15, 2017 9:04 am at 9:04 am #1339254Little FroggieParticipant
Anyone here in Eretz Yisroel?!?
C’mon let’s bank out!!!!August 15, 2017 9:05 am at 9:05 am #1339217
Add to that list Mod-29 and Mod-42.
The list is endless really… Those are the names I wonder about every time I see a post from them… Somewhere inside, there’s a voice going wish I could know who these guys really are.
I was once the Guy in Real Life. Believe it or not, I actually walked into a room where two people I knew well were discussing a post from “yekke2”, and they were wondering who he was. I introduced myself, and they were gobsmacked. NetiquamErro was also there at the time.August 15, 2017 9:06 am at 9:06 am #1339216
Which ones? Who would you want to meet?
I’d love to meet many of you. But there are a couple who I’d really like to see – not necessarily to meet, although that would be a blast – but to just observe a day in your life, just to get to know the ‘real you’. Or even to know just your name. Examples include (but are not limited to) DaasYochid, Sam2, Popa Bar Abba, Syag Lachachma, Pattur Aval Assur, mw13, Joseph, RebYidd32, ZeesKeit… People like LU and Lightbright are enough WYSIWYG that I’m not as curious…August 15, 2017 9:15 am at 9:15 am #1339262
Hm…. PBA, lightbright, TAOM, Shticky, RebYidd, LF, Oomis, Joseph, and like everyone!
LF I live here! lol

I could do a meet & greet at a specific time in a specified place (Jerusalem II?).August 15, 2017 10:18 am at 10:18 am #1339328
Yekke2, where was it that you bumped into that CR discussion of you?August 15, 2017 11:27 am at 11:27 am #1339363
Yekke2, where was it that you bumped into that CR discussion of you?
Somewhere in Gateshead England. The people I was eavesdropping on seemed to be Harry Potter fans, and were very excited about this thread. They were discussing SirVoddmort, PAA, and Yekke2 as I walked into the room.August 15, 2017 12:13 pm at 12:13 pm #1339524☕️coffee addictParticipant

I hope you don’t mean meAugust 15, 2017 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1339615
CA – I also hope it wasn’t you. If it was, then you’d know it.August 15, 2017 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1339614
And of course Winnie the Pooh and Mammel.e And I’m dying to meet all the wives (of the posters who have them).August 15, 2017 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1339613
WYSIWYG – I was about to ask you what this stood for, but as I copied and pasted it, I suddenly got it.
Funny – I was thinking that probably most people wouldn’t be too surprised if they met me, but it’s hard to know for sure.August 15, 2017 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #1339625mw13Participant
…because let’s face it, everything sounds better in an English accent 🙂August 15, 2017 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #1339665
If any of you are in Yerushalayim — I am generally at the Kosel for Ma’ariv/Havdalah on Motze Shabbos, about half an hour after shkiyah. I won’t be there this week or next, but I hope to be there after that… If you’re there, shout out for Yekke2!August 15, 2017 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm #1339668
Well – if anyone is at the Kosel on Motze Shabbos (during zman) for Ma’ariv and Havdalah, shout out for Yekke2 and I’ll come running. I’m there almost every week.August 15, 2017 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1339632
I’m very insulted. No one wants to meet me 🙁August 15, 2017 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #1339687☕️coffee addictParticipant

I’d really like to know what RebYidd23 is like in person,
and I’m also curious about DaasYochid, Popa, and Joseph.
There are many others it would probably be pleasant to meet,
but I’m not as curious about them.
Many of us already met RandomX
I assume you mean me, in which case that’s not true.
besides for one person who is really creepy
but I don’t know who it is
So you know there’s a creepy guy who’s on the CR,
but not what name they use?
How come no one wants to meet the mods?
Maybe it’s just that that wasn’t the question.
I introduced myself, and they were gobsmacked.
Did they want proof of your identity?
I’m very insulted. No one wants to meet me
Hey, I tried, didn’t I? (No one seems interested in me either.)August 15, 2017 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #1339792
We should arrange a get-together at a milichigs restaurant.August 15, 2017 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #1339800
“So you know there’s a creepy guy who’s on the CR,
but not what name they use?”
Exactly. Although I don’t know for sure if he’s a poster – he could be a lurker, a moderator or an editor.August 15, 2017 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1339801
I think I’d be uncomfortable shouting “Yekke” at the Kosel in the men’s section. Maybe you can wear a Yarmulka that says Yekke on it or something – Oh, I forgot, you don’t want to meet me anyhow cause I’m WYSIWYG… skip that.August 15, 2017 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1339806Geordie613Participant
Sorry I’m late to this discussion which involves me. Yes, it was nice to discover Yekke2 and that our families have old old connections.
I’d love to meet many people here. I think I’d enjoy a long shmooze with CTLawyer about his experiences in the 60s and 70s. I’d like to see what Joseph is really like. And I think I’ve met Rabbi of Crawley but haven’t positively identified him except by process of elimination.August 15, 2017 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #1339817SayIDidIt™Participant
Off the top of my head, I’d love to meet:
Hashem is Here (if I remember correctly)
There are a lot more but I’m too tired to think clearly right now…

SIDI: It is virtually impossible to meet both ZK and LF.August 16, 2017 12:11 am at 12:11 am #1339839
For all you folks wondering what I’m really like irl, with what you know and filling in the blanks to the best of your ability, what would you now assume I’m like irl?August 16, 2017 1:18 am at 1:18 am #1339805
“Hey, I tried, didn’t I? (No one seems interested in me either.)”
Sorry Randomex, I had a scary experience indirectly connected to that thread so I’m trying to be more careful. Nothing personal – I know it wasn’t you (at least I’m fairly certain of that).August 16, 2017 4:08 am at 4:08 am #1339906
I seem to have some sort of doublepostitis because when I post, my computer doesn’t register the unapproved post.
I think I’d be uncomfortable shouting “Yekke” at the Kosel in the men’s section. Maybe you can wear a Yarmulka that says Yekke on it or something – Oh, I forgot, you don’t want to meet me anyhow cause I’m WYSIWYG… skip that.
Just in case you didn’t understand – WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get – it is a compliment, as far as the CR goes, meaning that you don’t come across like you’re trying to be someone you are not, and that you appear to be very genuine. You aren’t trying to hide aspects of your personality to present a different persona.
My open invitation to make contact with me is limited to the male faction of the CR. Curious as I may be to meet you all, I don’t feel it would be appropriate to socialize or “get to know” the females on board.August 16, 2017 5:01 am at 5:01 am #1339903
K so when we meeting at the kosel? I’m game. Lol
Am I supposed to yell out my screename or what? Or am I supposed to just carry like 50 shopping bags…..August 16, 2017 7:49 am at 7:49 am #1339923☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I’m very insulted. No one wants to meet me 🙁
I think this entire exercise is one which lends itself to someone being insulted.August 16, 2017 8:56 am at 8:56 am #1339934

I’ve love to meet you and talk about the old days in the Rand
Ten days ago we hosted our youngest daughter’s chassunah…a wonderful Brai. Made Biltong in my own smokehouse.
The Chasson is from SA. I give no further hints to protect his family’s privacy. You would have had a wonderful time with us.
There are many here I’d like to meet of all ages and customsAugust 16, 2017 12:46 pm at 12:46 pm #1340462SayIDidIt™Participant

If I’d give a list of those whom I’ve met, I’d probably get banned for giving away too much. I’ve said enough about myself over the years (passed my 10th CR anniversary last December!), that just saying who I’ve met could risk exposing some of the most famous names in this vaunted location!
