    Froggy ... Hello and Welcome ... :wave:

    We don't really know, even if they say they are.

    Some Members have met each other in person, and they know.

    But we can never really know if someone is Black, White, Male, Female, Young or Old.

    Sometimes, one's words might convey a glimpse into these things, but a person can compose their responses to convey that very message ... with it never being the truth.

    Thus ... we rarely ever "know" ... but i will trust whatever someone says they are.

    :heart:

    Pan is right. There is a 6th sense about it...and besides, what don't come out in the wash comes out in the rinse.

    Pan...pork and wet dog? LOL LOL, I don't believe that you said that...nah, actually, I do... And Keita, that saying about the wash and the rinse... my grandmother used to say that all the time, and yes, there's truth to it.

    But when it all comes down to it, it's like Destee said, you go by what folks say, and hope they're telling the truth. With all the other things there are to worry about, guess you'd go crazy constantly wondering if folks are lying bout that or not.

    Good question froggy.
