I had a very profound thing told to me once by a Hawaiian guy I know. I tell you Hawaiian because the WAY he said it was so darn funny, yet super profound at the same time.
He was a fellow bodyshop owner in town who knew one of my customers from when they both lived on Oahu. My customer was at his shop and called him his "friend".
He told me he responded by saying (in his Hawaiian way) "You not my friend, we never go fishin, we never go to ball game, you never come to my house for bar-ba-q, you don't come to my boys birthday party, you not my friend". LOLOL
But honestly, on the forum, we KNOW who we each enjoy seeing on there. We chat back and forth, and to see that someone has requested you as an "E-friend" is of course nice. I have a lot of fun here on Hotrodders, that is why I am here every day. No, we don't go fishing, but damn it is pretty nice to see guys here every day, I like to call it a "garage" where we bs, toss around ideas, and share an "e-beer" together.
