In any thread of any size where I’m likely to post (not counting threads I start) because of the topic or the “feel” of the OP, there’s a better than even chance that I’m going to be joined by a group of Dopers who, for lack of a more meaningful name, I like to think of as my “Doper Gang.”

Who all is in your Doper Gang? What’s its name?

…asked a similar question and got some fun responses.
If you can’t just name 10-20 individuals who seem to follow you around (or vice versa) and who may not be on your own “Friends” list, you might look at the bigger threads you’ve posted in and check the “Who Posted?” data to get a list of the others there. Do that on a dozen or so threads and you can make a good enough list for the purposes of this thread. (If you can do it from memory, so much the better.)
And this is more just to see how we all overlap in our affinities for other Dopers (good, bad, or indifferent) than for any official record keeping.
I’ll be building my own list to post after a while.
In the listing for the threads in the forum (or in the New Posts list) you will see a line something like this:
Not a game, but for fun: Who’s in your “Doper Gang”?

That “by Antigen 6 129” group shows the last poster, the number of posts and the number of views. The “number of posts” is a live link to the “Who Posted?” listing which shows who and with how many posts each have replied.
I tried to start a gang of my own a couple years back. But seeing as how it was supposed to be one of the westside story dancing gangs, no body wanted to join. So I guess put me down as another ‘gang of one’ I guess.
And if ya’ll will excuse me, I’m going to go cry myself to sleep again.
