SC Addiction?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salaam. MashAllah this is a fantastic website with invaluable information. On a very lighthearted note, does anyone think that they are addicted to Shiachat? I'm not saying it's a bad think BTW because it's a very constructive use of one's time. But be honest... are you itching to use the site a few times/multiple times a day? :D:D:D

Nah, I would much rather talk to you guys in real life. That would be way more fun. Since I want to see the discrepancy between the online personas you guys have and how you actually are in real life. 

And I can assure you guys I try to have little difference between my online persona and the me in real life. 

Also back in my day, the internet used to be a gathering place of unattractive and ugly men and women looking to connect and socialize(myself included). Which raises the question as to why all y'all attractive men and women, and married men and women are on here?

I only knew SC when it use to pop up in qasida search on google, and last week I read some ridiculous post ( man allowed to beat his wife) that made me Sing Up and reply LOL.. What  a MISTAKE ( :D)

Since then I'm being on this site during my work hours as I'm almost at front of Computer.

I like ShiaChat a lot, mostly because I like to gather Islamic information.

Yep. Lol

Today is the first day you look in the mirror and tell yourself that is the last day you're ever going to say negative things in this manner about yourself. If you read my other post and feel you might have work to do , then so be it, but from now on you tell your mind that you are above descriptions like that. The advice i gave can take you mentally and physically on another level, believe me.

Thanks. But I also treasure this advice just as much: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-N0yXGVWS1Y

@hasanhh Good observation of the typo! Please do bear in mind that it's 3.27 am over here so I attribute the error to my lack of sleep. :sunglasses:

Ehhhhh ... maybe a "good observation". l use to teach so good habits are hard to break.

One of my favorites: l had my PS students write  a math essay. This one girl wrote this good paper. She was an A student. So l re-read her paper to find something --to make even an A student a better student. Eureka: 3rd page 3rd line. So l put a minus with her A grade. She comes up later an asks why she got a minus when there were no marks on her paper. l asked her to if she found her mistake. She re-reads her paper and cannot find it. l said, "3rd page, 3rd line". She looks again. Comes up blank. So l reach over with my red pen and circle a word --which l forget-- and said, "You misspelled that."   She was absolutely dumbfounded, "I got an A- for misspelling a word in math class."

Even fifteen and twenty years later, when some of those students l had then would see me, they'd bring this up.

I think it's much better than being addicted to Facebook or any other social media.

However we still need to realize that an addiction is an addiction - it shouldn't stop us from doing other important tasks in life. I sometimes get a site administrator to lock my account temporarily if I have exams coming up.

This is one way ticket to friendship where you would never find, like some people i found here, they are intelligent and very friendly. If you are unable to travel, you can travel through the screen. Subhanallah, these kind of things made it possible to reach other.

Then can we debate if friendship is an addiction, but is it? We being nice to each other is surely a good thing, as long as our life is like water, clean of sins.

Lol I know it'll never happen but someone needs to organize a Shiachat get together :D:D

I had the same thought. But I wonder if no one would come because aren't we all a bit anti-social? Why else would we be on SC :p

On a more serious note, l found this on addiction:

https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2011/09/why-keeping-up-with-rss-is-poisonous-to-productivity-sanity/ 

Back in the early 70s, l read this article in Reader's Digest --which l cannot find on the Net, of course-- an article about how people were so 'desperate' to keep-up on everything in the 1930s and 40s that a company had invented, supposedly, a formula that would condense every news story into a single word.  These were syndicated and published in newspapers, or a months list of what they were in magazines. People would actually look into a paper just to see what the word that day was. Such as something like "xibolatted".

So, in such a tradition, the SC "word of the day" for Monday, 23April2018 is:  "re-discombobulated formoxx".

Nah man, I'm gonna implement strict security measures. Also, everyone will have to provide me with a police clearance certificate. Inshallah we'll filter out that "person".

The murders were an inside job.

You'd better do that, brother. 
A lot of us here seem to harbor not-so-secret desires to murder each other. Not mentioning the exact names in here, but hints are always sufficient for the wise. :grin:

Which explains my concern about the cute little ShiaChat get together! 

Nobody knows when quarrels over grading the sanad of some hadith or interpreting a fatwa may turn into a bloodthirsty brawl.

Then there are those who love to play Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى Almighty, or e-Qadhis. 

Or maybe the secularist and the religious parties, pro-WF/anti-WF parties, pro-Tatbir/anti-Tatbir, pro-Taqleed/anti-Taqleed parties might have some more plans for each other up their sleeves than mere brotherly/sisterly dinner-table conversations!

So in case the plan ever materializes, I'm going to bring along some qama and a tatbir sword, just in case..............:)

"desires"   lt is more 'fun' to 'literarily torture' them with the written word.
