RE: Basement dwellers with online charisma
Here's a fun basement dweller experiment. Click on "member list" at the top of the rvf homepage. Cross reference the first page of top posters with the "members met" thread. Then do the math for post count.

Sound like a lot of work. Can you do this and post a graph?

Wow, so this place really is turning into "who knows more people" kind of party. Interesting. Guess I better make sure I go out of my way to meet some folks next time on my way through Bangkok before I get left out of the cool guy's club.

You're in the cool guys club. That kind of scrutiny is reserved for dudes who talk shit and make outlandish claims. You don't see anyone busting Tuths balls even before he was a mod. We respect his privacy because he's awesome.

Gotcha. I was partly just talking shit because it was Ali and, well, that's just more fun. There are definitely holes to that way of viewing each other though - even if I do understand the sentiment especially when it comes to big game talk.

I'm actually looking forward to meeting more members this year now that I've gotten more active on the forum. I'm sure it'll make for some trollish times.

Don't know that I'll ever hold it against those who choose not to though.

RE: Basement dwellers with online charisma
So you guys are going to make a graph to try and debunk the gmanifesto for the 70th time?

All his tips work: suits, squares, smoking etc.

I guess entertainment trolling a new value add on RVF.

Your best bet still, IMHO is finding hate forums. People that are angry generally have nothing positive in their lives - eg likely basement dwellers

First off my post to Ali was a jab for him having free time while laid up.

Second this isn't about forum members.

Third, Why are you on the G's jock so hard? The hamster is strong in you.

Hey Ali, how do you feel about El Mech having more rep points than you EVEN THOUGH you've been here longer than him? Has he really added more value to the forum than yourself?

I'd be down to meet up with some forum members.

The best way to learn game is with other guys. Reading helps fill in the blanks, but mirroring the attitude of a good dude with decent game takes being in the present to work it out.

I would definitely visit a large city for that adventure.

Emech gets rep points by offering members free oil changes.

RE: Basement dwellers with online charisma
We do have a lot of basement dwellers here. They don't want to admit it but they post often... however they don't often *cough* ever meet other RVF members.

El mechanico is the exception to the rule... (P.S. I gave him his 11th rep point, he owes me)

RE: Basement dwellers with online charisma
I know a basement dweller actually. Abe doesn't work, doesn't even collect welfare or disability. He could though, is probably obese enough for it unfortunately. Abe lives with his friend Bob. Bob had a crazy druggie girlfriend who dumped Bob's baby on him and then ran away. Abe helps out with childcare for Bob's kid.

If Bob every gets a serious girlfriend - Abe is toast, and I don't think either of them realize that.

I've successfully avoided meeting any forum members, because I know I'll get called out for all the 5's I bang.

My online persona is in no way an accurate representation of how big of a loser I am in real life.
