What is the wierdest thing that ever happened to you while chatting online -- in IRC, ICQ, IM, whatever?

Mine was having a woman I was talking to in IRC suddenly take off her shirt, photograph her breasts with the camera on her computer and shoot the picture over to me. It came completely out of the blue and I was pretty embarassed. And no, we never did end up meeting in real space.

Hmm. I would say the weirdest was when a "regular" to the channel I sit in alleged that he knew someone else in the channel who was making (note, not distributing, *making*) child pornography. This sparked about an hours' brouhaha where all of the rest of us were trying to guess who the other person was, awhile said regular played coy.

It should be noted that said regular also has severe self-esteem and drug abuse issues, so...

I was in a literature orientated chat room years ago, talking about anything but literature, when I stole a line from Alan Fotheringham and referred to Ottawa as the "town that fun forgot". {a title more apt for London, Ontario, in fact) A person pipped up that Ottawa was better than where she was currently living.

It turned out that she lives in London Ontario also, and less than a five minute drive from where I live. Considering we were in an American, if not international orientated venue, I thought this a pretty weird coincidence.

No, we didn't and have not met to date. Much of her chat revolved around her dissatisfaction with her husband and I just thought it best to keep her at computer's length, so to speak.

Nothing in particular sticks out wildly. But I have learned from online chatting that the world is a very, very small place, and it seems like everybody knows somebody you know. There is no such thing as anonymity. Makes me careful what I say.

When I was 17 I dated a guy I met over his BBS. After we broke up, I started seeing a friend of his, another person I met over his BBS. But that was 11 years ago.

Recently (about a year ago) I was living in Toronto and taking an internet-based correspondence course from Queen's University - a first year poli-sci course. We would have online seminars once a week. There were 12 people in the class, so we were split into 2 seminars, 6 people each.

After the seminar, we could stay and chat, so I did - I got to know this one woman who lived in Toronto, same as me. Well, we asked each other where we lived and it turned out that our apartment buildings were right next door to each other. What were the odds of that happening??

We never did meet - just too busy that summer, I guess.
