OK, so it's highly ironic that this is an online forum thread, but here goes... It's something that I've been thinking about quite a lot recently. I've been told to (brace yourself for those horrible words) "get a life" by one of my closest friends for frequenting an online forum. Apparently, being an active member of any forum just screams "no life." Personally, it's ludicrous, and I can take it in good stride. She and I are always ripping the piss. *BUT*, it got me thinking... how much online time is too much? Are we abusing forums to the point where we could be doing more physical, "real world" activities? Do we start to care too much about logging in and checking out new threads in comparison to "real," "important" issues? Could we spend our online time so much more productively? Are we just procrastinating? How much online time is too much? It's something that's been crossing my mind a lot recently, and made me realise just how much time I've spent on SS.org over the last while. Please note - I'm not criticising *ANYONE* with this thread. This is an observation, and I want to hear your thoughts. GO!
