Too Much Time Online?

For various reasons, which I won’t trouble you with, I have a question to ask of you good folks out there. Do you think some people spend too much of their time “online”, sitting at a computer? (I think it a safe bet that you know someone like this.. If you are not one yourself.)

There is no doubt that surfing the Internet has become an integral part of our daily lives. But has it become a “problem”? I myself suffer a mild ‘withdrawal’ when away from a PC for too long.. say, more than 10 minutes or so. And most of us have heard someone complain because their spouse spent their whole vacation checking their email…

Anywho.. I am curious as to what number – how many hours – is it per day do you think a person might be spending too much time online; so I have created a quick poll (and the option to say “no such thing” is there too) which I hope you’ll “vote” on. (Thanks!)
