You feel a little sense of joy joy when a thread you started gets a lot of posts, and even better yet a zillion lurkers PM you with hints and updates on something you missed.

At 6:22am, your wife encounters you and your laptop on the toilet answering posts. You ask her if she could bring coffee. She calls you a sicko. You continue typing...

your obsessive-compulsive yearnings for:

1080p24 and p60, 24/96 or better lossless audio, OAR (no black bars in any case), video sources with more than required bandwidth and capacity, 100+" screens in light controlled, noise-controlled and anechoic HT's, gold plated cables, dedicated and regulated AC supplies, 7.1, sub-woofers linear to 20 Hz, and a large number of other things of no interest to John Q. Public,

are briefly satisfied by a post castigating anyone and everyone for not catering to you.

You ask a question even though you know the answer, just to get other people to think about the issue.

You keep reading and reading all the responses to Warner going Blu, even to the point of missing meals, and you also realize how gracious most of the HD-DVD supporters are in accepting the decision.

I think the list resonated with folks pretty well given all the laughs it got. But worried that they may have all been drunk by the time I got them , I thought I post the list here also. And to have some fun.

It might be cool to keep adding to this list, especially when things get tense around here .

You know you’re an AVS forum addict if…

…you think forums are easier to read when the text is purple on black

…you believe there should be some type of award for reaching 10,000 posts

… your definition of an action packed evening is calibrating your home theater with the latest Joe Kane calibration disks

… your kids are name “Runco”, “Marantz” and your dog’s name is…

...you have to let people know not to expect any posts from you because you will be “away for a couple of hours”

…you post messages using the numeric keypad on your phone

…when your wife asks you if you are “working” while posting on AVS, you say…. “YES”

…you see more of your posts on a thread than all the other people… combined

…you instantly know that “+1” means that person agrees with the previous post

…you check your AVS subscriber thread first thing in the morning, before you check your work email

…the day you leave AVS Forum you still have to post that you are doing that!

…You have more AVS forum shortcuts in your browse than any other web site. (like me!)

LOL hey I'm an addict but I don't care b/c this has to be the healthiest and most fulfilling habits I've ever had. Thx AVS

Thinking you could stop coming here any time you want but having the scene from FCII pop into your head and knowing others will understand what your talking about.

You know you’re addicted to AVS….

When on a day like today… the server crash here bothers you more than the crash in the stock market.

And…

You are furious that 12 hours of posts have been lost before you had a chance to read them.


And…

Your post count went down.


And…

The way things are going today… this post might disappear too.

Larry

I thought we were cool de la?

...when you use "even my wife could see/hear a difference" as a valid argument
...if you knew HD DVD was going to run a Super Bowl commercial before it happened, and you didn't want to go to the bathroom for fear you would miss it
...if one of your strategies for saving money or staying happy with your recent expensive purchase is to stop reading AVS
...you bump a thread not due to an unanswered question but because you enjoyed the read and don't want other AVS members to miss out
...you read all the "you might be addicted" jokes before posting to be sure you aren't posting a duplicate joke because you would hate to tarnish your reputation
