I was wondering... what do you all do in life (professionally or otherwise) that allows you to spend so much time posting here on WTAWorld? For example, I myself am a university student which means that I have a lot of spare time every day... consequently I often spend several hours a day here, reading about tennis, following matches, checking results, posting random nonsense... but I have noticed that there are a lot of people who seem to be here permanently...
What's the deal? Are you all students? Unemployed? Post on the board all day from work (naughty naughty!)? Work night shifts? I would love to know how you people manage to get away with wasting as much of your lives as I do...

:confused: :wavey: :tape:

:wavey:...well I'm (or used to be) a studentard :). I recently completed my Law degree, but I don't want to work right now :(. I'm way too young and irresponsible :lol:. So I'm going to do my Masters and continue to have lots of spare time :).

I'm in highschool, so lots of time to visit here. But I'm in a boarding school so they have restrictions on using the Internet, which doesn't bother me much since I think I spend enough time here anyway:) When we are having class I sometimes sneak on as well (only in IT class though:p) but last week I've dropped IT for next year so I can only post after school;)

I was wondering the same thing. ;)

I know students in Uni or high would have much time, but for others?

I'm a office worker at manager level,...so not many people know what I do and they can't watch my PC monitor physically. :devil: But, actually I don't care about it.

I guess this site is just comfortable to me generally than other sites,.. and have some memories from the SANEX message board age. That's why I visit this site often even during my Biz trip to foreign countries.

Sometimes, I feel like I'm wasting time on this, but that's one of big part of life.

Is it naughty to post at work? :eek: I don't know the nuance of the word 'naughty' cause I'm not native speaker of English. :confused: But here, it is used for some bad meaning. ;)
Many people at work have coffee break or cigarete break,.. posting on this board is that kind of stuff to me.
Yeah, but I post and browse more in my office than home. Guilty! :o ;)

If you have been naughty then it means you have to be spanked by mother.
