Obsessed With DI Is there any other DI member here that is as obsessed as me to this forum?:o Since, I joined a couple of weeks ago, I always found myself looking forward for a notification from DI, every chance I got. I even go to the extent of going back to the forum in the middle of something, every now and then to browse for new posts!! I got an accident in my work a few days ago that forced me to take a leave for a few days and be confined to my bed. It’s so despairing really. So to pass away my time, my alternative is my computer. I didn’t realized my obsession until today, when I noticed that the time was already 5 pm…11 hrs straight, browsing; re-reading all my posts; logging on and off, but keeping sure that the site is open all the time!! If not for my physical treatment scheduled for today, I wouldn’t be budge from my seat…! :D From my experimenting on clicking on every button, I came across upon one of Dane’s original post explaining about ‘sticky posts’, which until now I didn’t get the meaning yet. I was about to read it when I clicked on something and lost the thread…after clicking the back button, hoping that I might find it again but did not; I felt desperate and decided to open Dane’s profile and from there, open all his past and latest posts. Instead, I got caught linking to ‘eye-catching’ headers…and linked and linked again…It’s enormous!! I found a lot of very interesting topics about the region that I just took for granted and some ‘food for the thoughts’ too. I also opened Rhoody’s and to be honest, also opened some of other DI member’s w/ interesting topics. I reckoned that if Dane and Rhoody involved themselves in a sticky thread, there must be an excitement going on there…just like in Why Not ( Nope, I didn’t mean the forum, but the disco place literally.:p ) I got plenty of insights from a vast list of topics…the best for me (for the time being), were the naming of ocean species and neighboring islands of EarlMJ… and there are a lot more there to read and learn. Things that I don’t have much interest in, were awakened by all the exchanging of opinions. The experience is very different when u just google or wiki for something, compared to hear someone’s opinion. It’s like someone said in one of the forums, I found myself taking the backseat…to just listen and learn. There were of course a few eye-brow raisings, but overall, it was all kind of educational (for me)…call me small mind, but I am, unfortunately. :o So, I went to my supposed PT schedule…but while on my way home, my mind was back again to DI…then there, I realized what I’ve been doing and got worried…. Maybe too late for a question, but was it unethical for me to open someone’s profile and open all his links? This worried me very much, coz it might be misunderstood for something. It wasn’t intended for peeping, if someone may think so, but out from curiosities on what made the topic so interesting. You see this is the very first forum I joined in, so the senior members might noticed my enthusiasm to reply to almost every posts, in w/c now I thought was very petty. If you think I was over the line in my usage of the site…please just give me your pardon, okey? I promised that until you’ll say so, I won’t be opening somebody’s profile to find about their posts. Lastly, I just want to say thank you again for bringing this site. It’s hard work!! It’s even hard for me to just compose this single letter, how much more the admins? I thought I knew a lot about Dumaguete, because I grow there, but I was mistaken until now…:D :D So, more power!!
