Question: Well I don't think I am. But some weeks earlier I saw this question in other section. I will ask some questions based on that question but in away that it suits GWS. These are not my personal opinions. 1)How many of you think this is a waste of time? 2)What are the advantages you have gained from GWS? 3)How many of you have make friends from GWS? 4)Also do regulars here waste their time, doing nothing? 5)Do I look like a regular? 6)Does anything we have talked here has helped any depressed woman? 7)How we can make GWS more creative?

1)How many of you think this is a waste of time? Depends on the question. Some questions really make you think, or research or laugh. Trollish questions are really a waste of time. The good thing about this place, is that you have many other categories and you can learn a lot. 2)What are the advantages you have gained from GWS? I have a good collection of good books about feminism and gender issues. I have met amazing people doing activism in real life and have met some very intelligent people. 3)How many of you have make friends from GWS? Although strange, as it seems that in the Internet we can't make friends, but I would say I have made a couple of friends, well, they feel friends to me. Behind those words and a computer scree is a real person ;-) 4)Also do regulars here waste their time, doing nothing? LOL, when I am here is because I am PROCRASTINATING paper work. Fortunately most of my work is away from the computer, I am my worst own secretary (lol). I do too many things outside of here. 5)Do I look like a regular? Yes, I consider you a regular, not irregular 6)Does anything we have talked here has helped any depressed woman? I don't know really, but, I know of women that came here with a real concern and went away worse than when they posted. I remember this woman in particular as she posted her thoughts before leaving, she was horrified about the answers she got, and she was looking for help. So I would say GWS is not a place to look for help for any kind of emotional problem, too dangerous for the soul 7)How we can make GWS more creative? I would love that it would be more like a debate forum, although this is not the intent of Yahoo. I like images and smileys especially of animals. I like my answers to have color, sound and images..you know curious giraffe looks or laughing elephants and some funny flying cows (lol) EDIT, as I didn't respond the main question: When I am here I can be very addicted (I still don't know why). The addiction gets better when I don't come here for a while. My resolution for next week (lol)

wow that is so scary and sad, i am sorry for you and your sister. yes talk to your grandmother and also try and find out if there are any al-anon meetings you can attend. you are such a wonderful daughter, and you cant go wrong being that way...next time she is bonkers, take a picture of her...let her see these when she is sober...there are rehabs out there for folks who don't have money or insurance and it is better than going to jail...good luck my dear, and remember to be strong for your little sister too...she could go down that road but you are giving her a chance by being a great example...also your mom might not be on the right medications or have a proper diagnosis and is self medicating and doing the best she can for an improper medical treatment...i am sure she doesn't want to be this way...all of you need help in some way or another...prayer works too...

1) Not sure how many, I do though 2) Broader range of views on certain topics 3) I've made a couple of "friends" but it's really just sharing views, nothing else so I wouldn't say its really friendship 4) Hell yea, I come on here when I'm hungover and post facetious answers 5) Duno.. 6) Perhaps 7) Not sure how we could without going against yahoo guidelines. I'd prefer a forum but yea..

For me it is an on and off thing. When i have a lot of cases and am busy i may not even open it for a month or two. It is absolutely entertaining to see what makes people tick.But it is time consuming and often leaves me unrested and sleepy at work if I devote too much time to it

People are just curious if others find meaning in participating in internet social exchanges and if so what? If anything those who participate gain intelecual stimulation there fore improving reason and logic skills as well as debate and argument formation skills. In fact just reading this answer your reading skill has increased by one. Congradulations! Edit: Oh man, looks like I took two points damage to my spelling skills!

1) GWS is a waste of the time 80% of the time. I am now usually in hockey, baseball, american football, philosophy, history, music, or polls & surveys when on am on Yahoo Answers. 2) None 3) I wouldn't call them friends. 4) Yes 5) I'm not sure 6) I'm not sure 7) Only allow questions that refer to social problems and to BAN REPEATS OF PREVIOUS QUESTIONS.

Realise that you may well be using it as a more entertaining, or safer substitute for real life, with its risks, problems, work, and boredom. Set a sensible limit, such as 2 - 3 hrs, and use an alarm, or reminder in your PDA, or cell/mobile phone for 10 mns earlier, so you can finish. Have some things ready to do, then. If you don't stick to this, no internet next day. The subject of addiction is addressed at http://your-mental-health.8m.com/blank_30.html where more resources are provided.
