I wonder if it also applies to forums? https://urbanbalance.com/signs-social-media-addiction

I can’t see it happening to sensible, mature people on forums such as this 🤓

I would say anyone with more than about 7000 posts has an addiction. ;)

Addicted? Me? Certainly not.

But just one more post. Just one. It'll be the last one. Promise

I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.

As I think I've already said, this forum has a core of high volume posters. People who post several times a day, every day. A not uncommon phenomenon. Possibly not unrelated behaviour is they often tend to make comments that change the direction of the conversation away from the primary topic. There is little that can be done to change things. The behaviours I have described please some and don't overly impress others.
