    how do you refer to other macrumors folks when talking to friends/family?

    for instance, do you say "this guy/gal from macrumors said that itunes 3...." etc etc... or do you say "this guy/gal (insert screen name here) said blah blah"... or is it "my friend robbie said blah blah"...


    just curious. i think it's an interesting thing with the idea of online friends....

    i used to say "this guy from macrumors". i still say it for most folks

    for the others i know better. some i say "my friend such and such"... "oh, who's that?" "ahh, i met him/her on macrumors"....

    kinda goofy. but alas, that's how it goes.

    and ya'all?

    it's mixed...

    I still cannot help but to refer to dukestreet as "duke" rather than his name...

    BacktotheMac is Chuck...shorter is easier...

    I call Moxiemike Moxie to differentiate between a buddy of mine...

    Mischief I refer to as Cal...

    jello....rower...teabgs...jef...cleo...etc...etc...

    hell...sometimes I refer to any of u guys as "one of the macrumors geeks" :D ;)

    Well, some of the guys and girls here, I refer to as friends. Sometimes I'll say names and the wife pretty much knows about everybody anyway.

    I've started using real names outside of MR, but its tough some times.

    Im shocked you actually talk about people here to other people.

    If put in a different context, I would slap someone if they said "hey, this guy from the ______.com forum online said that..."

    Well, I've mentioned you to my wife, and she even went in and replied to your short film thread after she say the UNC movie.

    What's the hangup - just because you 'met' all of us in a different context doesn't make it all that crazy. Times are a changin' - realize that its only going to be more common that you'll get involved with something/one on line.

    Sheesh!

    As a closet geek, I try my best not to use names (or specifically mention the boards) as it might tip my hand as to just how much free time I waste...er...spend here!

    yeah, i told my bro about your films and showed him some

    and if one has computer savvy friends, then it's common to be talking about computer stuff with them.... "guy from macrumors said that fcp 3 has such and such"..

    or even just "i heard that..." and then "where'd you find that out?" "oh, some guy from macrumors"


    i have yet to find a lover on here though...... though i'm guessing some will dispute that.

    lets not see you sabotage your own thread here jello.....:rolleyes:

    and someone once said there should be a Dating Forum

    SMG looking for SFG......

    that would be pretty damn funny, since there are only a handful of females on the site. I think the SMG looking for SMG might do better.....

    But being married, I'd only be able to watch and laugh...:D
