I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

It's like cocaine, except it's less expensive.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Because I connect with people more on here then I do in real life.

Also I like trolling.

Because it reminds me of my younger interweb days.

This is actually really the reason. I am not saying that DDO has become worse, it's just that I enjoyed DDO during that time period so much, where being here now allows me to feel a bit more connected to the old times. I enjoy meeting the newer guys like Benchypoo, Oberlicious, and WallstreetHotty, but everyday my memory of the noob years fades. Especially with people like Innomen going away.

A few luminaries in a dark welter still guide the weary traveler that I was--and still am, and it was under their auspices that I managed to afford myself a cursory glance across the broad firmament that, in that fractured but transparent face, I wish to reach.

In other words, while I admit DDO has lost much of its thrill, there are still a few members, with whom I converse periodically, that provide much of the intellectual enjoyment and excitation that I was acquainted, through only in passing, with--a year ago.

Free entertainment. I can argue with people for fun. My friends and family don't like arguing in general, much less arguing for fun...

(It's because they're all really, really bad at it ;) shhhhh....)

I can honestly say that joining this site a little over a year ago strengthened my relationships irl because I no longer felt an urge to correct their blatant fallacies anymore. I'd get out my urge to match wits on DDO. They appreciate not being told they're wrong all the time. It's brought us closer together.

Also I've grown attached to some DDO members and I like chatting with them.

Cause I do! Mr poopy pants.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
