this is the only board like this that i go to. But i know this happens a lot at other sites. A few years ago when i was into RPG video games i used to go to a few message boards and you would always find the same people... they were just talking about different things at different boards.
I think more people know each other here from other places, they just dont know it
Scarleteen is the only board I post on (it was the only one cool enough) so I haven't recognized people from other boards.
That would be pretty weird, to recognize someone from another board, especially if it wasn't sex related. I'd probably freak out! It would also be weird if you thought you knew someone from Scarleteen in real life. When I first started posting on here, I didn't tell my boyfriend (who was already on the boards) about it. That was pretty funny, but of course I told him after acouple of days
Nope, I didn't know anybody when I showed up on your door step here! Although since I've been posting over at missgirl recently, I recognize some of those people showing up here too. I don't know any of these people IRL, or at least I don't think I do. One of my friends knows I post on a "sex education message board" but she doesn't know where. And my boy doesn't yet know, but as soon as he gets around to reading my diary, I'm sure he'll know and will probably be along to check out exactly what it is that I've been getting into!

This is the first board that I've posted on with regularity, though now I've posted a couple of times on Missgirl. It's nice over there to see friendly names from here.

I know Negative Nancy from HipMama and GirlMom, but no one other than that. But I do know that there are huge communitys and cross-over communities in the world of parenting message boards. I see it ALL the time.

I see a lot of the same names and faces here that we have at MissGirl... we try to point everyone in Miz Scarlett's direction for info on sex and bodies and parts and stuff
I have seen missgirlies at smile & act nice, too. And, well, yeah... maybe the web is more incestuous than I thought, LOL. But I mainly frequent the girl-centric boards, so perhaps its natural to see some familiar faces?
I only post on 2 MB's - yours and The X-Files on Delphi...I'm sure someone from there comes here, but I am yet to meet them - I did recommend this site to a friend from TXFMB the other day tho :0)
