I'm based in the midlands but am in London about once a month for social / working commitments and think a meet-up would be really beneficial. I agree with the SA comments, they can be too brutal and extreme and not in line with our issues. Also if you're worried about meeting some weirdo why don't we set up a group for London? That way 3 or 4 of us can meet which would negate any awkwardness / worry (and lessen your chances of death should one of actually be an axe murderer ). There's a few English people on here so I think some others would be interested if we leave it open for a bit??
