Don't get me wrong, I wasn't claiming you get all you socially need from online interactions.
I just disagree that being online is automatically deemed anti-social because in modern world much of what is online is a social experience.

Plus the need for intimacy through being near people and such is entirely separate from the act of being social or anti-social. Yes as a social being we need the intimacy as well as the pure social interaction, but we are capable of socialising without the intimacy - which is precisely what multi-player games and social media and such offer.

As with everything,nothing is wrong with playing a MMORPG or any game unless one allows themselves to have it affect their lives negatively. Like neglect everything else, including hygene.

ask any salesperson about how effective subtle touches are at establishing rapport with prospective clients


As a salesman I feel the need to highlight that part, I have made a lot of sales just by reading my client's body language or using appropriate physical contact as needed! Nothing is more important than physical contact, which is why face to face socialization can never be compared with internet socialization.

I disagree, it was still lame when I was 12. It was just associated with geeks, I think, and well, kids will use any pretext to pick on each other at that age.


With whom do you disagree?

You.


You are perfectly free to disagree, of course, but your explanation didn't actually disagree with anything I said - which is why you had me a little confused there.

The basic premise of our arguments is to all intents and purposes very similar, if not the same - based on negative associations, and a disavowal of anything 'childish' because of peer pressure. Why do kids pick on each other? To appear cool to their social environment. In this context, trying to 'appear cool' and 'appear serious/adult' is basically the same difference.

Yeah, we agree on the form but not the substance. From my experience though, it has little to do with age and perception of maturity.

There is nothing wrong with playing Runescape. I used to get to mick taken when I was at school, but kids will pick and nagg at each other over anything little thing, its part of being a kid. Now i'm a bit older I don't really play RS as much (altho gonna log on to see what RS2007 is like), I just see RS as any other game.

there's nothing wrong with playing runescape, but it is a very outdated game and there are much better games out there.
i would rather spend time playing better games and having more of a social life (clubbing, chilling with friends, meeting new people).
runescape was a game i played as a child in elementary, middle school, and early high school. As i grow up, i dont have enough time to spend playing rs, newer games, having a social life, and studying.

First off, RuneScape isn't anything more than a grind-fest. You do the same thing over and over again, expecting different results each time. The game is basically Albert Einsteins definition of insanity. So, you can say you're insane if you play RuneScape.

I don't know about you, but when I repeatedly kill a GWD boss or when I repeatedly do Clue scrolls, I do essentially the same thing over and over again, expecting different results each time.
And you know what? I get different results every time!

Comparing this game to Albert Einstein's definition of insanity is completely bogus, lol.

There's also the tiny matter of Einstein not being a psychologist, or that definition being pretty much irrelevant when it comes to gaming, or... well, most things.

Yeah RS is that bad. People that have quit realize this. People that play might not or try and justify why they play it.

He did, in fact, say that. OP is, unfortunately, misinterpreting the quote in order to fill his wanted definition.

In Runescape, you don't do the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome each time. You do it as a process to achieve something, such as a level, a drop, etc. Aka a shitty job.
The challenge of a mistake is not to avoid it. The challenge of a mistake is dealing with the outcome.

Show me the specific text in which Einstein stated it.

I am far too lazy. And, if you actually cared, you'd be able to google it to confirm it or not. You're just trying to strawman. It's cute. Like a panda.

Wow OP, I really don't know where to start. I'm maxed with over a billion xp on Runescape myself, so I've sunk quite a few hours into this game as well, but your post comes off as nothing but a desperate attempt to rationalize the addiction of the last year of your life.

Instead of talking about working out and getting ripped, why don't you get a gym membership and actually do it?

Also, I seriously doubt Jagex would mistakenly ban someone who just AFKs for botting... What's up with that fabrication, lol?

I see a lot of this 'strawman' and 'logical fallacy' stuff on the tipit forums. I've never really seen it much on other forums and never heard anyone say it in real life, in any debate. Why do people use this on here? It seems quite childish.

Simple. It's easier to call someone out on one of those than to refute their point. The rest of the debate/post is then disregarded in favor of attacking this supposed error in logic, which is, ironically, exactly what a strawman argument consists of.

It's not strawman at all. I just don't want you to falsely attribute quotes.

By the way, I did research it for a while before I even posted. You are 200% wrong about Einstein saying that. It is written in exactly zero of his works, while showing up in several others. It also looks like the original source is from a Chinese proverb, but that's up for debate.
