About a year ago I was here at least 5 times a day. Now its once a week, or less.

Sorry, I added a poll since you posted.

I come about 5 times a day, just because I'm on the computer alot so I check in on franzbear

I put down three because I'm pretty much on the whole time I'm at work but usually wind up going to other sites intermitantly and log off when ever I go to lunch.

I was not sure what to put. I put 5+, but the correct response would be "too much!"

I read it in the mornings..maybe check it if I have time at lunch, same for the night time, if I'm not busy, or if there is a thread I follow.

All of them!

I agree with ranger. I visit PF probably every few hours during the day when I have access to a computer. Usually the first thing I do is click "New Posts," scroll through about 3 pages and read the ones with interesting titles. Then, I check my subscribed threads and the threads I posted to recently.

That process alone can take 30 minutes. I'm a PF-aholic. Anyone else want to come forward and admit their addiction?

It depends

Sometimes is 5+ but other times its none. So I just said one. Cause its eaisrer.

I dont log on every day but the days i do then its once and dont log off. If I need a study break then ill check GD and have a giggle to myself over some of the weird things people talk about. Im more a voyer PFer than an actvie poster. Its not people watching its people reading and yes im addicted to it.

This is the first time I've visited PF in days. I've been so freaking busy lately.

No excuses! You need to find more time for your relationship with PF.

Second time today. Happy?

I have a PF obsession. When I'm at a friends place and I get on their computer for a bit I always check PF. My friends get irritated with me because they aren't interested in PF at all. What's worse is that since I'm always on here I actually talk to people about the discussions I have on here because it's about the only thing I do on a regular basis.

"So I was talking to someone online about...."
"Uh huh.. yeah anyway..."

I log on whenever I'm at my home or boss' computer, and stay logged on until I'm leaving the building. So actually, it's either 1, 2, or 3 times per day depending upon where I go, but I'm constantly on even when not in the same room with the computer or when I go to other sites. It might well be even more now that my girl has moved into her own place and is setting up her computer.

Anything else you want to admit while you're at it?

I'm always logged in...I use the "remember me" check box. I've been running overnight experiments, and they really cut into my PF time since we have no internet access at the farm (otherwise I'd be on all night...instead I've been watching a lot of DVDs to keep myself awake in the wee hours of the mornings). During the daytime, I'm on often...most days never really log out, just minimize the window.

She was their idea.

I usually visit four or five times a day. I never officially "log out". Sometimes I stay here for hours at a time. Other times it's more brief.
