    I quite happily sit and press refresh on threads all day long. I want to be the first to see the latest posts. I'm not missing out on anything - 'cause I've seen all the latest tsr posts. :innocent:

    This is a form of socializing. Yes, it may not be face to face, but why would I want a 'real interaction' with someone I don't like, instead of talking on here with someone I do like? I'd rather an online friend than an offline enemy.

    Besides, who is to say we can't do both? I balance my life so I'm not on TSR 24/7, I do other stuff.

    Why do you have enemies? Perhaps the fact that you're here all the time has a subtle link to the way you see people with such hostility

    Nope as I usually use the forums whilst waiting for automated things to finish at work. If anything it makes me more sociable.

    I said enemies to highlight the fact that in many real life social situations, you are often forced to talk to or work with people you don't like, whereas on TSR you have a much easier time of only talking to/replying to people either worth your time or someone you genuinely want to talk to.

    Honestly I spent ages thinking this but it's definitely not the case after getting some actual experince instead of making hostile assumptions in my bedroom like you are

    Being on TSR is probably more helpful or constructive than another time-waster that would inevitably fill the gap if TSR didn't exist.
