Why is it the chosen demographic for these tests is almost always exclusively on one extreme end of the spectrum or the other? Where are the control groups? And the Korean peninsula for crying out loud. Those cats still haven't figured out that gaming continued after Star Craft was dropped. Im of a mind if your to ignorant to put away the play toys when reality calls then I implore you game or net surf till you do expire so as to save me the anger of having to deal with you in the future. What about people in my situation? I suffer from multiple instances of post traumatic stress issues due to military service and I use the net to interact with groups of vets as well as it being a WELCOME escape from reality now and again.

Like you just did

More specifically, don't mention Internet, Anonymous, and Scientology in the same sentence.

lol I think its true to some extent and probably full extent for some people. For me personally its somewhat true. But, it's not like the internet caused these problems though. These all seem like underlying conditions that would still be in place without the internet. Social isolation is a good example. Without internet it might goto console game systems, watching tv/movies, etc...

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone watches pornography. Some of us are smart enough to identify the problem, that pornography is poison to the mind, and then to break the habit.

Lol at the world. Anything someone thinks can be made a problem will be made into a disorder. Sigh.
