Just another angle of attack

It's probably the sick twisted Co-intel-pro freaks
giving the interweb a bad name. :bang;

I totally agree with you NE.

There is some evidence that Internet addiction permanently damages many of the brain regions that are similarly affected by drug or alcohol addiction. In a study published last year, for example, Chinese researchers found reductions in brain volume in 18 young people who were addicted to the Internet compared with the brain volumes of non-addicts. The Internet addicts' diminished brain regions included areas believed to play a role in emotional processing, executive thinking skills, attention and cognitive control. Furthermore, those who had been addicted longer had lower volumes in those brain regions, suggesting a cumulative effect.


Another study published in 2009 found that when online gaming addicts were shown screenshots of the games they used, they exhibited brain activity associated with the feeling of an urge or craving. This is what happens when substance addicts see cues of their drug of choice.

Still, not everyone is convinced that IUD should be classified as a mental health disorder. Some have argued that diagnoses of Internet addiction, like those of shopping addiction, sex addiction and food addiction, are really just symptoms of "the creeping medicalization of everyday life," in the words of Vaughan Bell at Slate. "Almost any problem of excess can now be portrayed as an individual falling foul of a major mental illness," Bell wrote.

As a kid you would have to drag me away from playing or having fun.
That is the nature of kids.

I think this new classification of mental illness is :bullshit:

Is 'Internet-use disorder' a psychiatric condition?

NeuRA's Prof Rhoshel Lenroot discusses the possible inclusion of 'Internet-use disorder' in the next revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV) with Murray Shoring and Sally Chester-Law on 4BC Afternoons on Monday 1 October 2012.
