So who exactly is addicted to tennisforum?

Symptoms
1. I'm really busy but I still make time to enter the forum.
2. When I'm in a house other than mine I would ask if there's a computer/wi-fi/internet connection available to at least lurk in here.
3. I got Tennisforums as my home page.
4. When I get to work before doing anything I log in at the forums.
5. I know who @sweet cleopatra is and what does she represents.
6. I aim to participate in TWAT.
7. My best online friends are from this site.
8. I get over-excited when several posters good rep me because of one of my posts.
9. I get angry when someone bad reppes me.
10. I've got facebook/myspace/etc exclusively for my tennisforums friends.
11. I don't get that much sleep when I'm posting here.
12. I post at 5 or more chat threads regularly.
13. I should be doing something else yet I'm still posting.
14. I compete with others in who have got a higher amount of posts / postwhores more.
15. I said I'll never post again yet I always comeback.

Diagnosis
You are probably addicted if:
Identified yourself with at least 5 of these symptoms.
You got most if not all of the symptoms and you are on denial.

Prognosis
It depends of the severeness of your condition, if severe you may end as Barrie_Dude and post whore for +6 years.



**********Add more symptoms, different diagnosis or prognosis if you like.***********

Many of these "symptoms" are not specifically for Tennis Forum, but more related to an Internet addiction. Anybody who has "Best Online Friends" or a "Facebook account for Tennis Forum friends" isn't just addicted to this site, but to the Internet.

Let them eat cake.

Re: So who exactly is addicted to tennisforum?

Some of these, refer to a lot of people and wouldn't show an addiction. Tons of us compete in TWAT, even against our will, so? And who doesn't know @sweet cleo. She's one of the most well-known posters around. Or are you saying she's a secret identity that only addicted posters would know about?
But I've got a few of these I guess?
I can quit anytime.

gone

Re: So who exactly is addicted to tennisforum?

No.6 signifies mental illness IMHO, not addiction.

The one that applies to me the most is no.13.
