Or perhaps we're constantly online because we have mental disorders.

People who constantly do any one thing most likely suffer from the same anxiety problems.

Another study that assumes correlation equals causation?

I would assume that a lonely, depressed person is more likely to have all that time to spend on the computer in the first place.

Hey, as long as those spiders stay on the walls, you'll be just... GET THEM OFF OF ME!!!

It is also possible that the excessive computer use reinforces that original loneliness and depression. Vicious circle.

Online is the only way I can interact with humans without my blood pressure rising. If it weren't for broadband, the murder rate in my area would rise dramatically.

This makes sense..only I feel what depresses me half the time is the content rather than the medium.

Study: People Who Are Constantly Online Can Develop Mental Social Disorders

What's wrong with spider voice, anyway?
 
2012-07-17 03:18:29 PM
I've no doubt that there are better, healthier things to do than being constantly online, but I suspect a lot of the cases start with stressful situations (breakup, job loss, etc.) which would put the person at risk for situational depression and other disorders. So cause or effect.

Being online all day is crazy now? That's what's farking considered crazy? Are you serious? You wanna know what's farking crazy man. What's farking crazy is being a god dam slave to corporate America. That's crazy. Every day, get your ass up at the crack of dawn, get your cup of Starbucks, and hop the multi-cultural subway slave ship to work just to make some dick face who doesn't give a shiat about your life a few extra dollars. That's what real crazy is. Sittin on the internet and yankin your piece to the new photoshopped picture of katie holmes takin a zucchini up her thetan hole is normal in comparison to the iron maiden we all call a career. So eat a big ol dick swedish study, and stick to making delicious gummy red fish.

You haven't seen mental problems until you've logged onto Second Life.
 
2012-07-17 03:32:17 PM
uh oh! is it safe to keep using the site? I feel kinda raspy

"katie holmes takin a zucchini up her thetan hole"

That was a disappointing GIS.

Obvious tag unavailable for comment, last seen washing hands repeatedly.

CSB:
In my experience, the article is spot on. Smoking too often, playing games for too long, or even masturbating too often (gasp!) have all caused issues. But sleep is the miracle cure for all of it. If you alter your habits and spend your time doing things that help prepare you for sleep, the negative behaviors seem to taper off, and the depression/loneliness is not such a drag, making it easier to enjoy the things that keep you from getting depressed.

I always wanted to do a study on how well journalists know the difference between correlation and causation, and then see what kind of press it gets.

Sleeping twelve hours per day hasn't helped with my depression.

Don't quit your day job. Unless it's therapy.
