    No, I have valuable things to do with my time. When I'm seeking attention it's through intelligent, academic things, not spam Smiley

    My inane posts on C9 aren't intentionally attention seeking, the fact they garner attention is but a consequence Wink

    Anyway, read this.

    I don't actually do many valuable things with my time, but I am glad to find that I have never heard of this website.

    It doesn't annoy me that there are a large number of these inane websites dedicated to an extremely annoying concept (that concept being extremely informal communication); it merely makes me wonder why people are so obsessed (it seems) with this form of communication.

    What is the compulsion to communicate with others? I can understand that people have a need to gain information from other people (hence my use of several forums), but the type of discussion I witness upon these abominations of the Internet (if I may be so bold) consists of poorly written text which has no apparent point (other than to answer stupid questions which need not have been asked).

    Wow, that is one blistering article. There for a second, I thought I was actually reading a professional piece of editorial insight. When they got to the point where "Twitter users are probably a danger to themselves and to society", I had to scroll my eyes back up to the address bar to see if it was a reputable source or not...what a bizarre article Smiley

    Funny though, since I forever remember Scoble introducing me to twitter Tongue Out I don't think he really fits the "danger to himself and society" profile.

    Nah; sure he's a danger to himself and society. Except society reacted properly and starved him of attention, so he exerts zero influence on anyone and is thus, no longer a menace to society.
