I wasn't suggesting that I intended to quit UK Chat. It was in fact in response to the hypothetical possibility of me doing so.
Consequently, I shall continue to make my customary contributions in the Forum, whether it be to the annoyance of others or not.
If you wish to initiate a thread on 'chat addiction', feel free to do so. I don't think it's been covered for quite some time and I'm sure you are guaranteed a flood of responses or, more likely, very feeble excuses.
;)

Probably, but do we really need to or even have the right to?
Most people are here by choice.
Everyone has something to offer or take from the conversation.

For some it may be more.
If the only addiction one has is chatting, does it really cause harm?
Depending on circumstance of course, some may see it as a breach of trust by a partner.
Which could lead to domestic unrest and possible violence.
Some may lose thier jobs with it, some may even lose thier lives.

So then should we support the addiction?
Ignore it.
Or attempt to help them save what they have over what they hope for.

I dont know.

Sh!t.. I went all philosophy again, drunk enough i guess.

I'm so very disappointed. I didn't want this topic protracted in a thread that is nothing to do with chat addiction.
You should consider adding posts when you have imbibed less alcohol, dear fellow.

I wanted to update my list with two highly-favoured catchwords being frequently used by the media and various presenters:
*Cancel culture
*Virtue signalling

It amuses me how certain phrases soon gather momentum and become adopted so readily by our (exponentially) ever-increasing, 'woke' society.
:eek:

And yet two more examples that seem to be gaining popularity:

*Offense archaeology ... the ability to forage emotional stress from anything historical that causes false indignation to the current woke culture!
*Hybrid working ... I believe that this is a blend of working either from home or at your former place of employment.
in fact, hybrid seems to be one of the catchwords of the decade when, once upon on a time, it simply referred to the cross-pollination of plants!
It's now seemingly used to denote anything being mixed with anything else.

Contender of the likely to be the most overused word of 2022 has got to be redact or redacted. ;)

There's been a massive outbreak of people signalling how virtuous they are... :rolleyes:
Yes, indeed in these unprecedented times ... and Comic Relief is on its way soon. :rolleyes:
Killing two birds with one stone, so to tweet, hell2bwith76 ... it's oligarch.
I'm surprised the auto-correct did not offer any assistance. Oh, it does.

Another overused expression these days is 'perfect storm'.
I remember seeing a FILM , obviously based on this inane, American expression, over 20 years ago.
They sure know how to invent hilarious terms of phrase across the Atlantic.
:cool:

'Solidarity' I used to just smile when anyone used that word, but it's all over the place now, you can't get away from it. A rolling of the eyes is called for... :rolleyes:

As is Nationalism.
Up until a couple of weeks ago nationalism was taboo, far right hate filled agenda apparently.
Now Ukraine has been "Invaded" it's all the rage.

Funny that
