just to get this straight. If someone met a real hatracker before they registered, and then another real hatracker after they registered, it makes them real, no?

wow, i need to visit hatrack more often, so many posters i've never heard of (who I'm sure have never heard of me either) are already real. Oh well, welcome to reality y'all.

I met with several other Hatrackers in Salt Lake some years ago; but, shame upon my head forevermore, don't recall their aliases. I'm fairly certain I do exist, though. I've met Geoff and Scott Card on several occassions, but as they were book-signings I'm certain they don't remember.

I have been lurking for awhile and just joined this morning. Here's my question. Why does it matter if someone is "real" if they are contributing in a positive/interesting/valuable way? Since I'm a newbie, I don't know when (if ever) I will meet anyone, as "real" life might not permit that but I wouldn't want to be discounted right off the bat.

Oh, it doesn't really matter, sweetbaboo. [Smile] It's just a fun to get to know Hatrackers not only here in the forum but IRL as well.

I'll confess that this is the second name I've used at Hatrack---the third I've used at either Hatrack or Ornery. I've started a new name whenever I've come back to Hatrack or Ornery after a long absence (at least a year), and I've never pretended to be two different people at the same time.

(A few of my posts under my old name still survive, though.)

kmbboots is now at least half real!

Kate and I went to lunch over the weekend so I could deliver Girl Scout cookies. We aren't sure if she's completely real, though, because although she's also met with pH, we don't know if the Hatrackers conferring reality must themselves be real (which I certainly am) and whether pH has attained reality.

By the way, Kate is a lovely and attractive lady and we had a great time together. [Smile]

Sweetboo, some of people here don't WANT to be real, not in the Hatrack sense, and that's fine as well.


I can't recall a time where anyone I respect discounted someones opinion here just because they were real and the other person wasn't, it doesn't matter in that way at all.


It is just fun to meet Jatraquero's, IMO. [Big Grin]

Teehee.

And I was listening to this song:
"'cause you were never really real to begin with...

...there is no you; there is only me."

In conclusion, you are all figments of my imagination, and I am the only one who is real.

[Dont Know] I'm not real, and living in Sri Lanka, it's doubtful I'll ever become real.

I guess that means anything I say is immediately discounted and unimportant. :cries: What will I do??????????? *wails*

I knew erosomniac and jennabean before I joined, but I also met KetchupPrinceConsort.

And some day we'll do a NorCal MiniCon and I'll get to meet a few more of you. Will that make me more real?

You know what would be a really good idea? Two Hatrackers should get together and travel around the country in a van, visiting other Hatrackers to make them "real" and solving crimes. Since I'm not really doing anything important, I'll nominate myself.

None of my friends ever frequent message boards, therefor, there are 10+ Ereneths on the web, none of them are 'real'.

Search for Ereneth on Google if you want all my internet IDs, about 4-5 of the matches aren't mine.

Real only applies to Hatrack, at least in this sense.

So even if you and your 30 closest friends had your own message board, it wouldn't make you any more 'real' here. So to speak.

<---- still not real.
