Which person would you really not want to meet from STW….

…… Because their forum postings drive you mental with rage or despair??
Just thought of this reading another thread, but I’m too scared to say!!
You’re thinking of gnargnar.
I think he’d be good to go for a ride with.
Rage? Despair? They all make me laugh!
EDIT – there was a chap on the “old forum”, I think he was from Edinburgh, was so PC it hurt. No urge to meet him, though not ever likely.Posted 8 years ago
Having met 32 of STW’s finest the other day at Sherwood Pines on a ride, only a couple of who I had met before, I can quite confidentally say I’d happily meet anyone off here. How people put themselves across on a computer and how they are in real life are often quite different.
BTW, I don’t put out on the first date.Posted 8 years ago
There are one or two that I’d like to meet, just to see if they’re as good on a bike as they like to think they are.
I can’t imagine anything worse that meeting Rudeboy. I’d have no common ground, couldn’t even talk about bikes because he rarely seems to do any riding, prefering to spend his time composing white-noise filibusters for this forum.Posted 8 years agomolgripsSubscriber
Bear in mind that the way people come over on forums is only a cross-section of their personality and often not really what they’re like in real life. You’d see more of a person IRL and you’d build a much better picture of what they are like.
For instance, if someone rants and rages on here, you’ve got no body language or facial expressions to go by – so you jump to perhaps the wrong conclusion and then they get upset, and things just degenerate. This is much less likely to happen IRL of course.
To answer the OP I’d meet anyone from here – I have an open mind. I don’t hate Gnargnar, Smee or Rudeboy. How’s that for PC? 😉Posted 8 years agoPeterPoddyMember
I’ve met loads of people off here and they have all been great and I’ve had a right laff many a time. Even some of the ones I’ve disagreed with or that I think come across as pillocks I’d like to meet, because I’d imagine they are pretty cool in ‘real life’ TBH.Posted 8 years ago
Well Scottish people are actual people who come from Scotland.
‘Scotch people’ are people who were actually born elsewhere (and may not have any actual connection with the place) but go on about the country more than any right minded Scottish person does.
Also known as plastic jocks.
