I think some of them may be 'unsocial', not 'Anti Social'. They prefer the be spent alone by their nature. This cannot be called 'Anti Social'. Anti socials are criminals. Unsocials are introverts. They don't meet more people or fear of gathering. But they feel easy if you offer your friendship to them. They are not danger to our society. Some times I also like to be alone.

Hey... how about this "mylot". You have your own "social" here. Don't worry about this...as long as we don't do anything bad... Even I had lot of friend who doing bad thing...and they are more socialized than me. They usually hanging around together, every day or sometime every week they gather on town square, and I can't say that they never done bad things. There is nothing wrong being unsocial, as long as you didn't do anything bad.

you know I never thought about it like that, but in a way you may have some thing there, because here in our house we have someone who spends hours and hours on the computer and is anti-social! I don't know if the computer makes them like that or? but you do have a very interesting point, this person was not like that before, I was blaming it on his genes, because this person's father was anti-social to a degree, his children could not hold a conversation with him, he would not answer them if they ask a question, but this father didn't own a computer didn't even know how to drive a car, so who knows they may be right about the computer!

from my point of view, this person whom you are talked about, makes computer as a get-away from his life. Maybe his character is inherited from his own father, then he found a world in front of computer. Sometimes i feel like this too, i found my world in the internet. But then i consider the people around me, i think if i dive to the virtual world, i'll become a virtual person too and deem a real person as a virtual one. It is terrible. Hope that that guy will start to realize this.

well you got a good point there, but he did not want to go college because he would come home everyday and say I don't like school but always good grades but never no friends now he's taking university courses thru the internet so right now it takes time off his browsing the net, he's going to do good but I mean if someone comes to the house he won't even say Hi, anybody in the kitchen in the morning he will never say good morning to anyone!! so I don't know I say it is his father!

I really don't think so. There may be others who are but not all may be anti social. So my answer to that is it depends on the person. If the person is so immersed to it that he/she does not bother the people around then I can say he/she may be anti social person. But there are others who may have immersed too much with it but it could be that he can shift to socializing with others when the need arises.

I don't think people can judge in that way, without knowing the situations in detail. I believe, tho, that often it is better to go out, talk with people, meet new people, enjoy life, than spending hours and hours in front of a screen by talking with people you will probably never meet in real. Computer is a nice thing to pass time, but shouldn't be a substitute for your life. It wouldn't be sane.
