    I think my head is about to explode.I don,t participate much in the forums,but do like to read them. Anyone who has read my profile or hubs know that I started hubbing to help with recovery.The amount of fighting and accusations that are flying about on hubpages have nearly got me reaching for my medication.I thought this would be a nice peaceful place,but its turning out to be like a real life soap opera.

      If you have the free time for cyber-space, and take part in the madness that you speak about, you could always look at forum drama as cheap entertainment; nothing more.  big_smile

        I find cyber fighting very good entertainment and as you say it is all free

    LOL...I can see your point, although I suppose it comes down to how much you (and other people) let the forums or any internet community into "real life." Sometimes I am saddened by how seriously some people take the forums...because, well, it's just the forums. I mean...I've had lots of support and help from people here - don't get me wrong - but at the same time, when I turn my computer off...I'm separate from it. I don't really know how to say it. I love my HP buddies, and I love time spend here (usually), but I just can't imagine letting the forum drama get so thick and real that it would really screw me up. Then again, I've never had the "pleasure" of anyone really taking the time to attack or bait me or any of that mess. *sigh*

    I've been limiting my time in the forums, though...I just have too many other things to do.

    I don't think relationships are really possible in cyber space. Maybe that is the frustration. People want to connect but connecting through a keyboard is impossible.

    I think it's possible, although I never pursued it on purpose. I met a person here on hubs that I plan on meeting with in the near future. I'm really looking forward to it and so is he. It's not romantic or anything like that. We've just become friends because we think alike and have an affinity for the same things. I'm kind of surprised by it, and it's a very pleasant surprise smile

    That sounds good Madame X. I usually meet people in bars when I am drunk (not romantic either). Then I forget I met them. Maybe I should try harder with a keyboard.
