I notice some folks here respond to every topic I check. Then my curiosity got to me and I noticed the same people are in those threads too. How do have the time to read and respond numerous times to everything here?
Don't be shy now.
if you didn't already know this.. it is in the code, none of these people really exist... NT uses advanced actionscripting to automate a reply based on character length and verbage... Each identity on here is created to sustain balance and chaos to continue the threads...
what he's trying to say is all these threads are belong to us.
Lots of coffee and an inclination to blow off work
QBN controls all our accounts.
im not really sherman
What you mean you fellas ain't gettin' Paid a gazillion billion dollars to do this? Suckers..
Tell me you at least got your complimentary NewsToday Cowbell right? Right...?
i got NT Red Underwear.
The red underwear with the wax seal?!! I am sooo jealous...
I will mail it to u if u want? Boxers is more my thing, not underwears.
I am a millionaire many times over
It's very much like chatting. You get some sort of instant reward. If you'd spend your whole life in NT, you'd always have a link to click and follow, a topic to reply, a webpage to post, and so on.
You'd spend your life here, "refreshing" yourself, forever.
I am mightily refreshed, let me tell you..
I can stop anytime I want
I'm stopping tomorrow
"forum participation can also become a destructive addiction, where the benefits are overshadowed by negative side effects.
Here are some potential benefits of regular online forum participation:
Learning new ideas and refining old ones
Enjoying community membership
Influencing the forum's evolution
Contributing to others
Making new friends and contacts
New business leads
Keeping up with current events
Learning about new opportunities
Here are some potential negative effects of excessive forum usage:
Reduced concentration and focus
Increased pessimism and/or apathy
Being distracted by endless debates and idle gossip
Gradually substituting tribal group think for your own intelligence
Impaired social skills, neglected relationships, and a weakened social circle (a consequence of substituting online socialization for face-to-face conversations)
Reduced energy (forum participation is sedentary compared to more active social outlets)
Career and income may suffer (including loss of employment)
So do the people around you know/see your addiction?
Ever get in the way of work?
My addiction is the real mail. When I hear my dog bark at 11ish, I kow the man is here and I may get something good. Like X-Mas morning... everyday! Except Sunday.
sounds healthier than pvn
A few of my programmer pals here in edinburgh write a whole load of shite and then run a script that ejects random responses into every new thread created.
Surprised nobody's spotted yet.
tru story - I was trying to reply to this thread, when my internet just bombed, my G5 bombed, and when I restarted, the default language was spanish... perhaps it's bad karma... or maybe it's a sign to break the yolk of bondage...
