tl;dr
Right... I've only really met people from the internet through b3ta, and the vast majority have been splendid types. I'm going to list them all here, because it is Friday night, and I've nothing better to do.

This isn't just an OMGB45H thing, I've stayed at people's houses, had people stay at my house, been to gigs, been to housewarmings, birthday parties, and even a wedding (with 3 more weddings to come!) Anyone who derides meeting "people from the internet" is talking bollocks.

So, here is a list of approx 100 people I've met through b3ta. A lot of whom I am in regular contact with through Facebook, Twitter and just generally seeing them in the course of day-to-day socialising. A few I don't speak to as much as I'd like, and 3 or 4 who I wouldn't be arsed if I never spoke to again!

90Nz0, Aardvark, Amorous Badger, asparagus time, baldmonkey, benkai, bilbobarneybobs, Blue Star, bogus official, Brayndedd, brooza, c3lia, Carowallis, Cheeky Boy!, chorizowagon, chunderbunny, come2whereimfrom, cr3, crazyjude, Curis, cunting for agatha, Dave The Hat, Donkey Gums, Dr Zaarlon, Druid, Easty, Esme Weatherwax, feek, Fluffy Elephants, FoldsFive, funkypixie, gathered crustacean, gianthead, Gizmo.mp3, Godzuki, Golden Fanjita, GrandmaOfShoes, grey kid, Hamster Trippin, Hellsbelles, hoogie, ImNotRightBotheredMe, in vino veritas, JackAction, jenpots, Jessie, Jobe, Kamikaze Stoat, Karl_Hysteria, lazygamer, Limey Treat, L-space, Lu, Malchick, manolith, mcdoof, MCQ, MooCow Byter, moohalaa, mr horrible, Mrs Trellis, Mrs. [email protected], Mstandot, mugatu, Mushroom, mykeyboy, Nile, Noit, p3te, Pachey, piston_broke, Prof. Kenny Martin, Reckless Rik, Red Rocket, rnuk, rogue, rosie posie, Rotating Wobbly Hat, rubymurray, scott, SexFace, sleepybinky, spangolin, SpringySunshine, swaza, techierob, Tenhole Titty Trumptons, The Cat's Mother, The Doctor, The Furry Dinosaur, The Great Architect, TheFallGuy, TopUpTheTea, Tyronne, Watney Heckbulb hnnnnnnn, Wicca'd Witch, Wildheart Baby, Woodside, Wormulus, Yannmania and Yeknom

I've also met friends and family of people I've met through b3ta who I now consider friends, such as manolith's bird, INRBM's brother, sister, mum and dad, Blue Star's parents, Druid and Limey Treat's lodger, Malchick's uni friends, Pachey's chap, crazyjude's wife, L-space's bird, to name a few.

If I've missed any of you off, I'm sorry. I'm not really, but you know me.
If you think I've met you, tell me in the subthread :)

The prize for the b3tan I've known the longest goes to hoogie (34 years and counting). The prize for the b3tan I see the most of goes to in vino veritas (4 days a week at work). And the prize to the b3tan who is more like family than family is of course, my sister - Mrs. [email protected] :)
