Question: Internet Romance

Item: Jilted lover uses eBay to hit back at Wikipedia guru/Philippe Naughton, UK News

More Info: As of midday today, $102.50 was the bid for a little piece of internet history: the T-shirt that Jimmy Wales was wearing when he met Rachel Marsden for what he insists was their one and only night of passion. There’s nothing special about the T-shirt, except for a couple of stubborn stains that even Tide extra-strength could not remove. But it’s not every day that a guru of the worldwide web uses his own site to dump his girlfriend and she responds by putting his old clothes on eBay.

Question: Do you know anyone who fell in love on the Internet? Did it work out?
