    Here's something fun and interesting you might get a kick out of... it turns out that what you are doing right this moment (engaging with the community of this internet forum) is actually quite good for you. At least, that's what a recent study concluded which was published in the Computers In Human Behavior.

    Specifically, the study concluded that "Internet forums have a positive impact on life satisfaction and lead to increased involvement in communities outside the confines of the online world." Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Well then... you can now rest easy knowing that you are doing a good thing for yourself just by being a part of this amazing forum! But of course, our amazing members already knew that!!! :D

    I've got friends in forums that I've never met, and a few that I've met in person.

    I've also learned a lot about quite a few subjects, and when I thought I could do so, tried to help others to return the favor.

    I don't need a study to tell me it's good for me, but it's also nice to have the official agreement.

    Forums offer a way of sharing knowledge and at the same time making friends to people one has never met. This forum is my other family whom I care about deeply.
