Addicted To Punternet?

30 posts in this topic

So I was wondering, as punting itself as discussed lots before could become an addiction, could spending time on punternet become an addiction (for the WG's and the punters wrt posting, researching, writing FR's)? And how much time do you really spend on here, whether just reading or actively contributing? Do you miss it if you are away for a while?

I go through phases of posting and then not, as other things I am involved with take me away from all my WG stuff sometimes for weeks on end, (not working itself but my website or posting on here) and then I see that I am so far behind the loop in any conversations that it takes me a few days to read through posts before I join in again, so a bit of a love hate relationship. I often will read it on my iphone, but don't post from there due to shocking spelling errors happening on iphones! I find it so incredibly interesting, having a forum where both punters and WG's can communicate, and have learnt a lot from everyone and find this forum really liberated and fab, so thank you everyone!

I am totally addicted as my post count shows ;) and being retired i have the time to post when i want, i did take a full 6 month break late last year till early this year and returned to find a changed forum in terms of layout and disappeared long time posters. I know a fair few posters from the party scene and punted with some WGs who are members or been members since i joined, its a good way to find out about whats happening punting wise locally to me as well. :)

Whenever I come here it's usually meant to be for a quick read of 10 minutes or so, but it's such an active forum that I invariably spend ages on here.

Posting is a nightmare because I always feel obliged to read every single post in a thread first to make sure I'm not repeating someone else too closely. Fortunately there comes a time when nearly every new post gives me déjà vu (are WGs too cheap/too dear/not Thai enough/I'm in love!) and then I can take a break for a week or two :lol:

So I was wondering ..... could spending time on punternet become an addiction

I think you may be on to something there Jemma. I spend more time on punternet than I do punting, that's for sure. I guess I find the main topic of discussion fascinating (well, apart from the "have you tasted your own cum" thread :rolleyes: ) and enjoy seeing the different types come and go from the board. It's fun (mostly).

I don't miss it when I'm away from things though, so it doesn't feel like a true addiction. It's just that the internet has replaced reading novels as one of my main sources of relaxation, and pnet is one of many internet places that I enjoy hanging out.

Likewise - I find it relaxing to log on for a couple of hours in the evening with a fag and a glass of wine and see whats being discussed - I find it a great way to wind down after a bad day at the office. Some nights I dont look at it but then I do miss it a little - so perhaps I am addicted.

Its like popping into your club full of like minded souls knowing you are accepted as one of them. We all have a common pursuit as club members and there is nowhere else to go to discuss our little secret.

I am totally addicted to punternet as I love reading others members' view on a host of topics and I even came across your good self on this forum and I will be paying a visit very very soon :) another reason which made punternet so good is that you can be sure that if you choose to see the ladies who are members here,you stand to get a genuine and proper experience and last but not the least I've learnt a lot about punting in general from this site.

Thanks for your replies, really interesting to see how you all feel about/use punternet. tomdavies, such a relief to know I'm not the only one that feels that way, having to properly read all threads through before replying!

Fortunately there comes a time when nearly every new post gives me déjà vu (are WGs too cheap/too dear/not Thai enough/I'm in love!) and then I can take a break for a week or two :lol:

@smiths, no suprises there then! @opus, I think you have explained it really well, the little club thing. @Matrix, I look forward to meeting you, be sure to introduce your alter ego, or are you secretive about it when you visit us ladies? <_<

I can relate to that.

My punternet usage is directly correlated to my punting. I will go through a spell of punting, say, once a week, and then nothing for 6 months. Accordingly, I will tend to be on the Forum to ask questions and follow conversations during those periods when I actually am hobbying, but otherwise not.

Without naming names or dredging up tired old debates, I am much more cautious and hesitant now about commenting in certain threads though. A while back, I innocently made what I thought was a fairly innocuous comment on an interesting subject and -- without knowing that I was wandering into a well-trod minefield with a controversial history -- I was (falsely!) accused of being part of some paranoid conspiracy to promote a particular agency. I was so incensed at the lie that I got drawn into a ridiculous debate, when I should have just ignored it.

Ever since then, I tend to use Punternet as a tool rather than a genuine forum for conversation, debate, discourse or fun.

In fact, this is one of my very few recent posts that isn't either asking or responding to a direct and factual question.

@Markfelt, I can totally relate to what you are saying. I haven't had a major falling out online, (except standing up for another member on another forum who I felt wasn't having her right to say what she wanted respected, and I didn't enjoy it) but I have seen so many rather aggressive things develop with other threads/forums, that I am quite careful with what I say/which threads I join. I am quite opinionated in real life, but really don't want the negativity of online battles, and things can be so misconstrued online.

Glad to have drawn you back into answering an opinion based question! Let's hope it stays happy on this one!

Yes, reading the posts is something I do most evenings, and after being away I spend time catching up. "All human life is there"! Fascinating how you build up impressions of people from their postings.

So I was wondering, .............. could spending time on punternet become an addiction?
Yes it could/did, but by the time the same topic has come up for the tenth time (as they all inevitably do) I get a tad bored and give it a miss for a while.

But.......

........ Do you miss it if you are away for a while?
Yes. It’s usually the first place I log on to when I return from a holiday!

Back in 2007, I was addicted to the Punternet Chatroom; I spent most of the evenings chatting to SindiLeicester, sometimes it could go on till the next morning.....

My time on Pnet bears no relation to actual punting, and these days I generally post more on the off topic board than on the other boards. After a while it does become a case of, seen it, done it, got the T shirt, regarding main board posts. It is still worth posting imo, usually to point a newbie on the right direction.

The chat room is a minority thing, typically for dedicated regulars :o including myself (newbies always welcome - check the threads on the chatroom on the techie board for tips and advice). I tend to limit my visits into chat, as it is possible to spend an awful lot of time there, often fun, and the conversation usually ranges far and wide, and contrary to prejudice is only intermittently about punting.

I agree regarding the constant rehashing of the same subjects and Xenia posted a thread illustrating this some time ago with subjects like BB and Frequency of punting among many being very regularly discussed on thread after thread, it can get monotonous in my opinion. There are a constant stream of newbies joining so of course for them it will be a new thread and possibly subject and there are some good twists on an old theme threads that spring up out of the blue along with totally unique subjects on occassion. Along with the other boards there is usually enough of interest to me. :)

After a bit of a lull in the last few months of last year and the first few months of this, the main board seems to have a new lease of life recently. An influx of fairly new posters (not all punting newbies) has added fresh insight into the usual topics and there is a sense of vibrancy here that has been missing for a while. I don't think I am alone in this as a number of semi-retired ex-regulars seem to have resurfaced recently.

I visit early morning and in the evening, I reckon I could actually recognise the posting style of certain punters, but not of any wgs, cos they tend to post with less frequency. Ive said this before, but I truly wish posters would not use a unisex nom de forum. I punt a fair bit, so I imagine will be on here until that stops. One thing ive learnt from these and other forums, is that there is actually a trainspotting type of punter, who finds the research, the record keeping, engrossing, I imagine that they are actually over-represented here.

I am a "reader" (or is it a "lurker"?)rather than a "poster", but I log in most days and enjoy the banter.

That would be WGs like Xenia, Strawberry, Natashasexy4uxx, BristolBBWClaire, ChloeMKEscorts, Helen Jones and LouisaPSUk. All infrequent posters with anonymous posting styles ;):D .

I do miss the feature from the old board where everyone all had a little coloured symbol reminding us of each posters gender. I have never particularly noted the username of pooter as being strongly gender typed btw.

Pooter is the main character in the Edwardian comic novel, "Diary of a nobody", it was adapted for tv in the late seventies, the adjective pooterish, pooteresque, appears more or less weekly in newspapers, usually to describe a self-important, and obviously deluded politician. The word pooter, is as common as falstaffian, micawberish, scrooge, and forms part of the lexicon of the educated man, without implying that he has read the book. Of course for pooter, not having his name recognised would be the classic pooteresque experience. His life was an oddesy of failure and futility.

Clearly my education has been found wanting then :D . I also must read the wrong newspapers. Thanks for clarifying.

Jemma -I have a 10/15 min trawl through the posts everyday, i am not addicted to it but thoroughly enjoy reading the various inputs. I do use the posts for practical purposes as well, i.e when I am in the mood for a punt or a massage I take an extra amount of time reading the posts as they help me make my decision where and who to see

Hi Jemma,

I love the company of ladies and as I do not have the oppos now to have mistresses I am now addicted to parties and punting. To keep up with what is happening in the Scene then I have become addicted to PN. There are other sites I look at but PN was my first and I have to keep coming back to see what is going on and chip in on subjects that interest me and I have knowledge of rather than posting on everything and anything just to get my name up. Especially as I can't access the site all day long only when I am alone.

Regards,

davidgood

Wonderful opportunity there for a talented parodist to write a hitherto unpublished chapter to the novel: "I visit a house of ill fame, and nobody recognizes who I am".

I only visit about once a week, so I'm not sure I qualify as an obsessive just yet. :)

I'm off-grid quite a lot now so cannot visit my old online habitats with the same frequency. It's usually only when my punting life is out of sorts that I visit. On here I can have a good whinge to soothe my frazzled head until I find a nice lady to put an end to my continual punting dramas by engineering a session that can slake my burning desires. Now where is she?
