      does the computyer make demands on you or do you make demand of the computer?

      does the computer 'talk dirty'?

      does the computer have an over-the-top sex drive?

    When you continually check responses thoughout the day.
    When it's the first thing you do each morning.
    When you start getting involved in each hubber's life.
    When you get caught up in the drama.
    When you get anxiety if you didn't get to check the forums today.

    Is there a 12-step program for this?

        Bill Wilson, founder of alcoholics anonymous.
        The term is used by fellow meeting goers to identify other meeting goers who apparently go to AA meetings in random places. It is a call sign if you need help...

        Ne`er mind, you're not a meeting going big_smile

    Ask yourself if you go on forum binges.  Just because you can manage to get through a day without forum-ing, it doesn't mean you're not an addict.  There real question is what happens if you stay away from the forums for awhile, but also whether or not you remember what you wrote when you were on a binge.

      That's a good one, Lisa! I frequently forget about Forum threads I myself started after the posting frenzy has passed.
