    Are forums too addictive?

    Basically, what I've found, and several other people I know personally, is that from experience...forums can become very addictive. I knew people who failed an entire grade because of Gaia alone. Even myself, I have found wasting hours at a time on forums. Not necessarily a bad thing, when it intervenes with personal school work, and social interactions, then it may become a problem.

    I'm speaking very generalized (not EAO, or Gaia, just FORUMS specifically!)

    Yet, if you compare this with AIM / MSN / Myspace, how realistic is this notion? Please share any opinions you might have.

    Huh, me, a forum addict? No, no way. I'm only part of one forum, and that's AO.

    Online forums are especially addictive to internet losers who spend 10+ hours on the internet and 6+ hours on forums.

    And Gaia is the shit-stained forum hole of the internet. Just pointing out facts.

    Depends on how hot the forum is. Some are great, others, get a little dull after a while. I know I'm on alot.

    Well so what? Socializaing and gossiping is addictive because it's a normal part of human behavior...
