to wonder how many of you are friends in Real Life?

Lots of posters on here seem to know an awful lot about each other, for instance, when and where people are on holiday, their day-to-day activities, and other really personal things from people's pasts.
Is this what you have picked up from each other over years of using MN or are some of you good friends in the real world?

I have a good memory for some stuff/some posters - especially the prolific ones or the ones with memorable names. Mostly though it's a 'feeling' more than specific details.
I am RL friends with one MNer
I am RL email friends with a couple of others
I am PM friends with a few
... and I'll chat to most anyone on here, my 'oh do fuck off' list is quite small :)

Some people are friends in RL, there are few siblings or other relations on here too. A lot of the time though it is just people who have been here a long time. When you've been here a number of years it is normal to start remmebring things about a poster and perhaps having a little chat when you see each other on a thread jsut as you would do the same with another school gate mum once youve been bumping into each other over a few years even if you are not friends.
