Face to face can sometimes be awkward as words spoken cannot be retracted. I would agree with Zuco. If I say something wrong in here, I can change it later or before posted.-zuco- said:Hi Marie. I would say with face to face discussion it is more spontaneous and you say what is on your mind straight away. One of the benefits of a forum is that it allows you to collect your thoughts and find out for yourself what your opinion is on a particular subject before you post it.
Forums are an excellent medium to expand friendship, yes - make enemies too. But we all have one common denominator here - United. I am a member of a multi national, multi club forum too; there is much more "bitching" going on there due to the intense rivalries involved.
