    Just wondering do you remember specific people on the forums and there qualities?

    And do you change the way you talk to them? (ex. you know they are in money trouble and therefor you don't recommend the tricked out MacPro, you know there religious believes and answer accordingly, etc)

    I tend to, but only for the people I see a lot, or have talked to privately.
    ex. Doctor Q math geek, mad jew (do I really need to explain?), ~Shard~ supreme commander of bastardialand... ect.

    I remember people who behave badly on the forums than those who behave.


    Probably why I remember all the Demis. Plus having drunk with a bunch of them helps.

    I remember some people, it's hard not to. As for changing how I talk to them, generally I'm just more friendly if they're nice people. :)

    Sometimes I remember people who are helping me on certain threads, but other than that not really. I cant even remember people in my class sometimes.

    I find it hard to remember people on forums unless they are in my WoW guild forum. I do however know a few bad ones that i should stay far away from.

    I tend to remember the ones that make useful contributions and actually hang about to answer replies to threads.

    Also it's mainly the people with avatar's that I remember. People who change their font I don't really notice apart from Cassie.

    i do my best to remember people. at least the 'regulars' or those who post often enough that you get a feel for who they are.

    I remember people, quite a few too many, but this is mainly due to the peoples avatars. If you change it then i'll likely forget who you are unless of course you have a brilliant name/post lots.

    I too remember ppl, I have an awesome memory when it comes to remembering ppl.:D However, it does help a lot if they have a good avatar.

    Fearless Leader, Don't Panic, xUKHCx etc etc. Awesome avatars.:D

    Break rules loads of times, I think you get warnings first though, and most of the time ut has to be very bad to be perminatly banned.
