I've come to a point where I have an ATS tab up the entire day; and constantly check for news on an hour-to-hour basis. I would say I'm semi-addicted.... I also have OCD when it comes to specific websites & check them every day; I find it's difficult to not be [on] ATS for more than a day --- for sake of missing any important news.. so I was wondering how often my fellow ATSers are logged in or browsing topics.

Heh, pretty much everyday.

It goes:
Facebook, deal with that.

ATS, browse interesting new topics, check on my posts, and then leave it up.

Post things I find on ATS to Facebook.

Ad Nauseum.

(Strictly speaking... after some time and depending on the threads it deflates) If it's hot, its hot! When that's thecase its constant refreshing, hour to hour like the OP, but generally it's a routine.

Not to say I'm always glued to it, and sometimes I have an independent question I like to search for here, but to me, this is like my morning newspaper

*** BUT: If I am inspired by something I haven't found, or if I am privy to certain information or a particular theory, I will spend hours crafting a thread, and many more hours defending/supplimenting it!***

Every day pretty much.Always have it up. Constantly checking for interesting stuff and validating/researching topics discussed.Great way to get current news from sites that Im unaware of or dont have the time to search for.

I am on ATS more when there is something being discussed that is of interest to me or if I am pissed.

I keep ATS open in a tab, with New Topics, check it when I take breaks from doing other things. Also keep one other non-conspiracy site open. Now that the weather is getting nice, I'll be here less and less. Work will start taking up most of my time.

Plus, it seems, to me, ATS is slowing down in general. What topics that interest me, are seen less often. I do listen to ATS Live often, keep it open in the background. Also find myself searching really old threads and reading some great debates on certain topics. Seems there was much less trolling years ago, compared to now.

Interesting you posted this thread, as I've been thinking about not spending much time here....synchronicity.

I come here and lurk multiple times throughout the day. Try to scour the forums for things I missed or (my personal favorite) things that somehow link to each other. I have started to feel enlightened ever since I discovered ATS.

I am on ATS daily. It is my source of what is (really) happening in this crazy world! I look at it this way....many people read the newspaper daily or listen to the news daily...well this is my choice to get the daily news...and I feel good about it!

Far more than I should be, but I don't care.

The first thing I do when I wake up is check ATS. The only times I'm not here are when I play Torchlight or when the computer is off, otherwise I'm here all day and it's the only site I'm on

Definitely better than watching tv; I don't even touch the tv, but I do watch Spartacus/Supernatural streaming online. I'll check mainstream news clips (MoxNews YT channel ) sometimes just to see what their take is on things.

Typically I just leave it up all day.... if I'm not around the computer I'll check on my phone from time to time. I work long days (working right now) and use my personal computer for work, so its easy to actively check ATS, but the majority of my reading/posting time is b/w 10-12pm right before bed.

I pretty much check daily, but its mainly due to I want to stay in the conversation and not get left like 20 pages behind. If I had to go on vacation or something, I would have no problem leaving the internet alone.

Me? I live here!
Miss a day? Are you serious????? Yeah, I'm one of the addicted ones here. Maybe we should start a club.
