      Hmmm... I'd love to meet @attheedgeofscience and have an intellectual conversation with him cause that guy is smart and very savvy in a lot of things. I'd like to meet @Markku! Probably also @RaZaH and @SoulStation... And sweet @Karen... So many people I would love to meet! :D

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      not known, too many possible causes
      Oh, I would also love to have an intellectual conversation with him, but question is "Would I be able?"

      First thing, I would like to shake @Markku's hand for making this forum (with his helpers, of course) and then I would like to meet in person and talk with absolutely everybody. Of course I have my favourites too, some for their warm hearts, some for their sense of humor, some for their bright minds, but I would prefer not to reveal who they are.

      As for the scumbags who made good money exploiting our suffering and desperation baiting us with useless books and pills, I would also like to meet with each of them, one by one, in a private room though.

      On a second thought, I would like to mention one of my favourites, so I respect at least a little bit the purpose of this very nice thread of @valeri. I wanted at one point to give him a hug for every post he put, no matter the content of it, so he will collect from me about 100 "hug" ratings, after I read a post of him that he wrote for a suicidal person. I am talking about @nills. The world would be nicer place if there were more people like him. Didn't get to do that, though, the 100 cyber-hugs. Maybe I will give him those hugs in person. Can't search and show you the post I am referring at, cause if I see it I would start to cry like fool again.
      At such a meeting I would like to give a real hug to every person I gave a cyber-hug.

And one more hotel on green mountain, so we cen meet wherever we want, there is el buss going up and then up to green colder woods, and lake.

      I think an International Meetup Day is a wonderful idea, and New York City would be an ideal location. I'd love to meet Markku and Steve, plus the other moderators on our staff. There are so many members I'd like to meet -- too many to name!

      @glynis-harbron,

      Yes, I'm sorry we won't get to meet you; I'd love meeting you! It would be nice to have two meetups -- one in the U.S., and one in Europe, as we have many European members.

      I like @Karen's idea: a meet-up in Europe and here in the US.

      Oh @glynis-harbron, I was hoping you would come and bring sweet Molly so I could see her adorable bunny self in person! I just might have to come to the EU meet-up too. :cat:
