Can someone please explain to me what this "real world" is that everyone seems to be talking about? I hope you're not all suggesting that there's a world outside of here.... I don't think my barely adequate psychic defences could take that!

The only person IRL who knows that I´m a member of MB is my son, who is sworn to secrecy. Recently I considered inviting a RL friend to join us here, but I decided against it in the end.

How about you guys? Do you kept your MB alter-ego under wraps, or have you gone public and admitted to the world that you post in a music forum ?
Also, if you want to get philosophical, What does your decision say about you ? How does it affect the way you post?
I don't think it's too idle a question. I was thinking about doing a topic about whether or not members discuss MB irl the other day.

The way some people behave on here I could never invite anyone irl to this site. So MB has become one of those things that can't share with other people irl. I usually talk about it abstractly irl something like 'I belong to this music site... they said [whatever] about that band.' I sometimes invite people in plug.dj to check out MusicBanter. I know it's not for everyone but there is also a probability they might like it. I actually have one "referral."

Membership runs from a few days to a few years. I don't know what kind of person hold out long than a few weeks or months. But I often wonder why some people stay and others go. I remember a couple members telling me they either thinking about or were going to quite MB. Sometimes they gave reasons. Even though I didn't know Stephen that well, but I felt bad for him when he made his last post explaining why he's leaving. I would hate to think if I invited someone here irl to join MB and he or she had a horrifying experience it would be in some way my fault. So no I don't talk about MB too much or encourage any one irl to join.

No one knows I post here, and no one knows I have friends on here in the real world.

The whole point is that here I'm able to talk as an anonymous, nobody knows me really and I really know now one. So I would not want anybody to know about my writings on that forum.
