Suzy Sock Puppet BS: Is Mudcat Addictive (42) RE: BS: Is Mudcat Addictive 16 Sep 13

I think something is an addiction if it takes over your life in a negative way. It's a lot more than simply feeling compelled to do certain things.

I'm thinking back to a post from GfS that I wish I had printed out and saved. Something about how people do their learning and bonding best in the spirit of joy and fun! Absolutely true. I go to church every Sunday and I basically like the people there. But yesterday we had the ordination of two deacons and a grand party afterwards. The bishop was there. Lots of smiles and laughter and you could feel this bonding taking place.

I have a master's degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies so I could write you a five page intellectual paper on this very topic. That's why when I read his post, it struck a mighty chord.

So Ebbie, if you feel compelled to check in on Mudcat, it doesn't make you an addict. It makes you a lovely person who likes to reach out, care and share with others. Nothing wrong with that :-)
