- Copy and paste your LJ Friends List into an update and leave behind an LJ Cut.
- If you've met them in person or otherwise know them from the offline world, bold their screenname. If you've only talked to them on the phone, italicize their name. If you've only talked to them online, leave their name alone. If you have someone on your Friends List who has multiple LJ's, only use one and get rid of the rest from the list. If you met them in person first, underline their name.
- Post and let other people copy the meme.

Yes, it really was easier to un-bold the ones I've not met offline than to bold the ones I have. I don't think I know anyone I've only spoken to online or on the phone. One or two of the online-only people I don't even know who they are, and they may be repeats.
Whether I met people *first* online is harder. In general oxnetters, ukmisc people, afpers, ucam.chatterers I met online, and some of the Cambridge/London goth/geek axis were met online too. Dougsoc, rpgsoc, cusfs and the remaining goths/geeks account for most of the people I've met in real life first.
