from the surf-on-over dept

In the past we’ve had fun making fun of psychologists worried about “internet addiction”, but people get accused of it all the time. A columnist in New Zealand decided this need to be investigated, after being accused of spending too much time online. Of course, her investigation consisted of taking a variety of online quizzes to see if she was really addicted to the internet. She also found a number of online help sites for internet addiction – which does seem a bit like having an AA meeting at a bar.
