If there was an SOH party/meetup in your area .... Would you go
Probably, although I imagine it would be pretty dependent on who else was coming. I've met a lot of other people whom I knew initially only online, and I sometimes traveled quite a long way to do to. They were almost all people I had known online for a good while, and the subject matter that brought us together wasn't very contentious (cooking, health & fitness, medicine & medical research professionals, mostly), so there were no existing animosities to consider.
No, far too many people seem to be argumentative and intolerant of other views. It does not sound fun.
Possibly. Maybe. Well...you know.
