Peace and greetings to everyone.

Are you emotionally attached to forums?

For example, someone really goes hard on you, and makes you feel like a right loser, you treat it like it really happened to you. Or the classic example is if a female member says something sweet about you, you get really chuffed and treat it like the hot girl next door just popped round and said the same things about you to your mother.

I know I am. I can't help it. I'm very emotionally attached to forums.

There's no other poll options other than 'Yes' and 'No'. It's a straight answer, no but's and if's.

Salaam,

Yes I do I have to admit that I am emotionally attached to forums. I don't want to be but yet i cannot help it! It can be one of your friends on the forum that may say something that may offend you and they have no way of knowing it. Or when there's a whole thread a everybody's participating in it, but yet you feel left out. That's the main reason why I really don't want to get involved with forum. Obviously when we post we start making friends and those friends can end up hurting you. Or when you wanna say a complement to a brother but someone else might take it for flirting... goddd i hate that. That's why I'm reserved and I act like how a muslimah is supposed to act. I don't like acting wild.

Danish, obviously you can't see the light of this poll. With members letting other members know how they interact with forums, it should help members to further proof their posts.

I would imagine that everyone is emtionally attached to forums to some degree or another, since we are all living people (I hope!) behind those posts, and just because we are looking at a lifeless computer screen does not mean that we are not receiving intelligent responses through it (from real people).

So if a member posts something offensive, we all get offended, simple as that :) (therefore don't do it please!)

The Internet is merely a tool of communication. Like other forms of media, use of the Internet is regarded as a value, rather praiseworthy if for a good cause. On the other hand, like other tools, it is open to abuse. Know how to use it .

There are so many false sects and kuffaar who have set up sites, each one portraying to reflect true Islam. This is proper harmful to those Muslims who are not very learned.

The internet has no rule!! :-\

.
I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parents’ work address/telephone number, or the name and location of my school without my parents’ permission.

2.
I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.

3.
I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my mother or father along.

4.
I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.

5.
I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. If I do I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the service provider.

6.
I will talk with my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online and appropriate areas for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.

7.
I will not give out my Internet password to anyone (even my best friends) other than my parents.

8.
I will check with my parents before downloading or installing software or doing anything that could possibly hurt our computer or jeopardize my family’s privacy

9.
I will be a good online citizen and not do anything that hurts other people or is against the law.

10.
I will help my parents understand how to have fun and learn things online and teach them things about the Internet, computers and other technology.

hey 350z this is a good thread mate, I aint emotionaly attached to this forum (it's the only forum i'm a member of). Obviously half the time one should be on here is to gain more knowledge of our beautiful religion, whilst the other half we debate and air our views on certain issues. Yeh who the hell am I kiddin I just come on for a great time! Lol LI is more of a soap opera to me, I mean i've been on here for a good period of time and you get to know a lot of ppl and their characters. Sometimes you do tend to pee quite a few off, but I tend to have a laugh rather than anythign else. At the end of the day it's cyber world and when I go to exit-start-shutdown- "the LI" experience is over.
But then I get bored and switch the pc back on and go start-internet exlorer- favourites- LI!

Of course Im attached to the forum emotionally. How could you not be. There are many sisters(and im sure the brother have a similar experience) who I have made friends with. If they were to be nasty of course I would take it to heart. Who wouldnt? They are my sisters and I feel very close to some of them. I would love to get to know all the sisters on this site but its not gonna be possible - just too many people.

Its definitely nice when someone says something positive about you. Gives yuo a real boost and you feel good. Again if someone is nasty to you or puts you down it can have the opposite emotional effect.

350z, this is a good topic, i like it

It's the best forum I know but the emotional attachment has gone.

I wouldnt say Im emotionaly attatched to forums, however i can get worked up on them sometimes like wen some ones arguing with u over some fiqh issue n wnt let it go, ive had many salafi-non salafi debates before n ppl are just so close minded and follow blindly n grrrrrrrr anyways. So no im not emotionaly attatched, I treat them as a tool to give naseeha and to gain knowledge myself from other members, just generaly to learn. Plus my husbands at work all day n i dnt have much else to do. However when my likkle babys born in august I will probs be too busy staring at it n playing with it, n changing it n feeding it etc etc, so wnt have much time.
