Hi fluffykerfuffle
You seem surprised that you should agree with me.smiley - smiley
F19585?thread=8284973&latest=1#p110476428
Perhaps we should talk sometime.
----------------------------------
This is a little tete-a-tete. Posted to your personal space.
I wonder just how many people are looking in.
Perhaps they would care to join us. This could include moderators aces wizards or lurkers. Perhaps they would say why/how the picked the message up.
I assume that you have my agreement to use your space as an experiment.
-------------------------------------------------
You and I can chat here to keep the convo. on top.
Lets start with info. the we are happy to reveal and just take it from there.
We've never met.
1-I am an 84 year old male from North Lincolshire.
2-I am married with 2 sons.

Point 1 would be obvious if you could see me in real life. smiley - biggrin

Straight away fluffykerfuffle I could take to you as a friend. smiley - smiley
Let's not get carried though and concentrate on what linked us together.
1 - You are quite happy to put your location as Western America. A big country.
2 - You keep your age to yourself and your marital status.
I could assume from the fact that you have three children that you are married. It also goes some way towards a guess at your age.
A quick look at the 'front page' of your personal space helps little towards your age. A lot of fish and an indication of social responsibility.
You have already taken it that my wife is alive (I have passed the smiley - tea and smiley - cake on to her.)
It is our Diamond Wedding next year. smiley - ok

Again an error - The second line should read "Let's not get carried away though"

I've just had a quick look at your space with the intention of pinning down your location a bit more accurately and instantly found the reason why you picked up on the matter of personal space.
What better reason than - A86859021
The whole game of lurking to learn is quite fun but on the three occasions that I have crossed swords with the moderators, it has been as a result of doing just that.
With the old BBC site you could cross over to other sites and my attempts to link people together and get them to come over to h2g2 got me into serious 'virtual' bother smiley - biggrin
I cover the story in my personal space.

hi smiley - smiley
well, yes i suppose you could be married and your wife no longer 'with us'
but usually folks say widowed or something smiley - winkeye

no i am not married... if i was i would say so... but then how would you know that smiley - laugh
i am old enuf to have 3 grown children and some grandkids

quite a long time ago i came to the oh no rude realization that
anyone i was talking to on the internet
could be someone entirely different from who they said they were...

and not because most folks are good at that kind of roleplaying
so much
but because some ARE
and we really dont know who is

so i keep it all pretty impersonal
heh heh
nothing personal

now, this site and its meets clears up that problem
for those who go to the meets (with their admitted screen name/s)

but most of us cant go to the meets
for various reasons
and anyway, i have had such bad experiences on here...
like starting in the first week i signed on
that i really couldnt trust anyone enuf to meet them in real life anyway

so anyway...
what i am getting at is why i am rather vague about who i am
just enuf facts to set the stage per se

and enuf about that

yeah i can see what a bummer that must have been for you
that misunderstanding when you were just trying to entice folks over
to this great groovy froopy site
and especially from another bbc place
how easy to forget that some folks
have good reasons to want to be left to their own devices...

so ...i have to go do some stuff now but this can be fun

oh hey, share the smiley - strawberries with your wife too he he
