Default BE Accents & Appearances

If we were to meet BE posters, would we be taken aback with their accents and looks. People get pre-concieved ideas and only when we are introduced, do we go, "He/she is not what I expected". Scottiscelts comes from near me as does Soapy, so I know what they sound and look like (saw photo). Is this just me or is it more comon.

OOh you say the nicest things sometimes

You're rather like you appear on here, crazy and off the wall

Would love to meet you Framac, time to put a face to the name after all these years - then i'd know who was on the end of the next disaster!

Accents may be similar, but diction and style varies, so I suppose I've never really connected a voice to a location. Pre-conceived ideas: think this would apply to just about everyone - such is the nature of the internet. You can't pigeon-hole individuals but certainly groups and 'scenes' emerge...

..or am I thinking too honestly and orginally again, and will cop it for saying this

Never spoke directly to Soapy or Sc but al bet a pound to a penny, they sound the same as me. You could throw a blanket and it would cover our threes areas.

I often don't factor in a regional accent when I'm reading posts in my head.....and when meeting people from here I often feel a bit silly that I am taken aback that they are Scottish, Northern, Irish etc lol!

Excuse me - i'm far too posh to sound like you. I can't understand you half the time when you start speaking in that .... slang tongue of yours.
