I especially ask those of you who have been here more than two years, although all comments are welcome.

On the forum, you interact with people every day but you only see a nickname.

I’ve been on other forums before and you get one day when someone says that a certain member has died. That person knew him personally and that is why is saying it on the forum. And then, you think of some debates you shared with him, but all you can remember of him is a soul hidden under a nickname. You feel a bit sad, but not nearly as sad as if you had meet him in person.

I’ve been thinking that I’ll probably be on this forum for many years, getting increasingly involved, and then I think that all people I’ll interact with are souls hidden under nicknames.

In any kind of forum it is good to not personally know many people for privacy reasons (unless they were your friends before), but especially on this one it is more important. If you have been here for many years, you are probably loaded, and that’s why you have to be careful.

For me, the forum is motivating but has this a bit sad part.

Keep your identity safe and hidden from the users of the forum or they will rip you off if they find a single mistake from you. They would not even bother to tag you by painting red bringing some issues that happened in another life (if there was an another life by the way.)

Consider me as a living example until I leave the forum or die accidentally at young age ...
If I had another life before this life and if I would promoted ponzi in that life then they would tag me for that as well LOL

PS: Yes sometimes I feel if I would know some of the members in real life. There are some really nice people out here.

PPS: May be you want to move this topic to the Ivory Tower since this serious discussion section is turning out to another spamming section. (It's just my thought)

I've been on the Internet for a while. I know that in time, you can form warm relationships with other participants when you discuss things together on a forum. Sometimes you get to know their identity. And sometimes you don't. But the sorrow you'd feel on the passing of a fellow forum member, when it happens and provided you come to know about it, gives you as much grief as someone in the everyday world. Especially if that person had helped you by giving you valuable guidance and advice.

Psychically know people? While it is disappointing that the technology of brain-computer interfaces has not yet progressed to the point where one can merge one's consciousness with other people's minds over the Internet, I don't see that as being a major problem for this forum. Frankly, most of the people on this forum are not the sort of people I would want to know psychically; I would much prefer that they keep their minds to themselves. Tongue

The spelling you are looking for is "physically".

To be fair, I'm not sure I wouldn't want to know many of you physically either. Keep your disgusting bodies to yourselves as well please. Grin

It's better not to know people from here personally/psychically.

Why? (For me) it's because it will just complicate things. As you have said members are having debates here most of the time. I know it's a bit childish to think of this, but if you have debated with someone, other people take sides (either you or the other), and it would hurt your feelings if someone you know won't take yours regardless if you are right or wrong, no?

So, if you knew every member, I think it might not just end here, it could affect you outside the forum as well.

I remember the saying "what you see, what you hear, what you feel, when you go, leave it here"

Well I wouldn't exactly sit on anybody here if I met them in person, but I wouldn't mind having a coffee with a few people. 

It is kind of an interesting question, since I and others do spend a lot of time here.  Jet Cash seems like a mellow guy I would like to sit down and have a chat with.  I'm not worried about people knowing my real-life identify necessarily.  I don't have a lot of crypto that could be stolen, or much of anything else.  I have pissed off a lot of idiots here, and I'd prefer if they didn't know who I was, even though most of them would have to have one hell of a plane ride to come here and exact revenge.

Ultimately I think it's better that we're just screen names.  It's not like this on other forums where members have met up in real life, but I think it's appropriate on bitcointalk.

I’ve met a couple forum members. It’s always been a great experience. There are lots of troublemakers here who love to stir up trouble any way they can from behind a keyboard, but we all have a unique shared common interest that I think presented in the right atmosphere would likely turn many forum enemies into friends. I know I’d love to share a beer with anyone who loved Bitcoin as much as I do.

I disagree entirely. If everyone agreed with everyone else on everything, the world would be so boring as to barely be worth living in. Similarly, just because I know someone/they are my friend, I wouldn't want them to take my side regardless of if I were right or wrong. Quite the opposite, in fact. I'd expect my friends to call me out the loudest when I'm incorrect.

As mentioned, there a handful of forum members I wouldn't mind grabbing a drink with. Not just to talk about crypto - I thoroughly enjoy having my views and opinions on science, politics and near enough anything else challenged by other intelligent and well thought out points of view.

Variety is the spice of life.

Yes, I know that. I myself would love to be corrected, especially by someone I know.

I'll explain why I said that above, Idk if I could express it right though. You know when you are in the midst of debate, you think that you're right, go defense yourself, will be carried away somehow. It would hurt your feelings, even a little bit in a short period of time if someone you know don't take your side. You might think he didn't understand you, until things become clear (either you realize it yourself or it was explained to you) and you're back in your senses, you'll understand if you're wrong and admit that. ** No hard feelings after

even without knowing people from the forum for their message to be so to say a psychological portrait of a man.For me personally,what I don't know people from the forum it is not a barrier in order to participate in discussions I am very interested to know the opinion of people unknown to me.

I like Vod, but his avatar frightens me. I'm quite happy to know him on the forum, and, assuming his avatar is accurate, I think it's best to keep it that way. Smiley

ps. The Ivory Tower is only comatose because people don't post there. A few good threads could give it the kiss of life.

yes, It is little bit sad having a treating and chatting in this forum while we never know the real personality with whom we treat. However, it should not be a matter or hinder, we should interact and act with good morality and attitude. No matter whom we interact with, no matter where the place we interact, the most important is we should respect and positive. I think this forum is much positive even it works on digital and seems unknown personality.

This is a the consequence of digital era, now many people are interacting in cyber world. They can see and know the world by smartphone and other devices, these all are as the impact of technology improvement. We can't avoid it.

This is no matter we are interacting with people whom we never probably do not know them, we can know and see them by their words. The word using is reflect their come. We should treat with them as positive as possible.

I think it's worth pointing out the positive side to this as well.

We more and more tend to be living in an echo chamber. People are generally friends with others who share their views and are in similar demographics, their social media pages are filled with stories and articles they agree with, they read news from sources that align with their political views, etc, etc. With ideas like "safe-spaces" and various institutions banning controversial speakers, people are surrounded more and more by only what they want to hear.

The forum is a welcome break from that. There are a number of users here who are on pretty much opposite ends of the spectrum on a variety of political and social issues compared to myself. We are likely in very different demographic groups, and even if we lived on the same street would be unlikely to interact beyond more than a casual greeting. However, they articulate themselves well, and so I've come to respect their opinions, even if I disagree with them.*

If I knew these individuals in person, chances are we wouldn't be more than casual acquaintances, and we certainly wouldn't have in depth discussions. Considering differing opinions, perspectives and views,** and thereby examining your own, even if you don't change your mind, even if all you learn is how to defend your views more effectively, is how you grow as a person.



*Unfortunately there are significantly more users who do not articulate themselves well and have earned no respect, but that's the price you pay for freedom of speech.

**Provided these views aren't completely at odds with basic facts, like the Flat Earth crowd
