Are you ADDICTED to the forums?

    I know I am.  But chatting with people, discussing world shaking questions, being there for new friends I've made here has made a lot of difference in my life.  So maybe I spend a little too much time bumping on the last one to post thread - it's all good, right?

    How about you?  have you benefited from this endless forum chatting?  or is it outta control for you?

    Do we need to do anything about it?  and anyway what could we do?
    I'm on here everyday in between my chores and writing about 4 or 5 hours - seriously!

    We can make it productive....30 hubs to read thread was good one...it can take us away from forums for a while..

      great idea!  I also realize that I find new (to me) hubbers (like you) in the forums and get their hub input and that is all to the good!

    I don't know if I would say I'm addicted, but when I make a post, I can't wait to see the response.

        It's kind of a let down if you don't upset people sometimes. SOMETIMES.

          Really?  I have been really trying not to upset people.  Sometimes I speak out about things I think are ignorant, but I don't actually tell people I think they are ignorant!  Should I?  probably not.  Once I got in trouble for trying to defend somebody who got into a bit of a jam, then everybody turned on poor little old me!  It sure is fun to watch people sometimes squirming around!  But I don't like to make them squirm myself.
          nor do I like to squirm!

            I just like to be the devil's advocate from time to time. Half the time I could really care less what people are arguing about, but it's fun. You don't like to squirm? It's fun!

    I feel I can't do without it.  I guess that's addicted.
    I look forward to chatting with everybody every day.  Of course, its not a bad addiction in most ways!  I'm not addicted to attacking or criticizing others! I'm not addicted to empty argument just for the sake of arguing.  and I like to leave the forums with a good feeling for everyone!   So maybe there actually CAN be a GOOD addiction!

    One more thing is reading the hubs and making comments for the hub/hubber. That is also one way to increase productive activity on HP.
